Masters Genealogy & History

Masters, an ancient patronymic-occupational English name, derives from Latin magister, a title for the tribal chief; in medieval times, all crafts required masters. Masters genealogy includes the variations DeMasters, Maysters, McMasters, Measters, and Mosters; the s-suffix indicates son of, similar to Masterson. Masters family history dates to feudal times in Kent, where they were granted lands by William the Conqueror, and to the 1630s in Salem, Massachusetts, and Virginia. The family motto, non minor est virtus quam quaerere parta tueri, means it is no less an achievement to keep possession than to acquire it. The unicorns/griffins on the crest/coat of arms indicate military courage, choosing death over capture.
