A comprehensive Bisset / Bissett website is a Canadian one, bissett.org where there is a comprehesive history and a selection of different Bisset tartans.
The family motto is “
ABSICISSA VIRESCIT” meaning

“Though we be cut off (or hewn down), we will still grow green (or flourish)”

This moto is also depicted in the family crest, below is a picture painted by Avril Bullock (nee Bisset) depicting the shield hung on the cut tree.
