Chaddock Coat of Arms
The Chaddock Coat of Arms illustration above was created from information officially recorded in ancient heraldric archives. Documentation for the Chaddock Coat of Arms can be found in Burke's General Armory. Heraldric artists of old developed their own language to describe an individual Coat of Arms. In their language, the Arms or Shield is as follows:
"Gules, an escutchoen argent, charged with a plain cross of the field, within an orle of martlets of the second."
Translated, the Arms description is:
"Red, a silver shield charged with a red cross, within an inner border of silver birds without feet."
Mottos are believed to have originated as battle cries in medieval times. No Motto was recorded with the Chaddock Coat of Arms.
The surname Chaddock appears to be patronymical (from father's name) in origin, and is believed to be associated with the English and Irish, meaning "descendant of Cath(war)."
