Cecil Genealogy & History

Cecil is a distinguished English surname borne by barons (Burghley), earls (Salisbury and Exeter), and viscounts (Wimbledon). Other noted name-holders in Cecil family history include a lord high treasurer and advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. First found in Devon in the 11th century, Cecil derives from the Old Welsh male personal name Seisyllt, indicating a sixth-born son. Alternatively, Cecil genealogy could trace to an ancestral Norman home in St. Cecile in Flanders. The first Cecil in America landed in Maryland in 1658. The motto cor unum via una translates as one heart one way. Silver lions on the coat of arms signify sincerity and courage.
