The Neales, otherwise Nyells, were from in and around Kilkhampton and Morwenstow, Cornwall. Their ancestry can be traced there at least as far as the commencement of the registers.  The progenitor of this family in America was Nicholas Neal, a tailor, who came from Bradworthy, Devon to Albemarle County, Virginia in 1727.


The drops of blood in the design of the arms commemorate the sacrifices of family members in military service, with the white stars on a blue background borrowing symbolism from the both the Stars and Stripes and the Stars and Bars. The Native American elements in the crest reflect an aspect of the American Revolutionary War along the southern frontier. Captain Joseph Nail (Neale) commanded Nail's Fort during the War of American Independence and died in that conflict. His son Reuben enlisted at age 14 and fought at his side, along with an older son, Ensign Joseph Nail, Jr. Reuben's grandson Benjamin L. Nail, Sr., fell in 1863 at Chickamauga during the War for Southern Independence. The motto is a pun on the surname
