I tried Google online translator - its not Latin - altho 'sustine' could mean 'waits'

Hi alienlady

Latin: magnanimiter crucem sustine
=
bear afflictions with magnanimity (also rendered, bear up bravely under the Cross)

Also this:

Quote
The emblem of the Order is a modified Greek fleury cross inscribed in Latin, Magnani­miter Crucem Sustine, the watchword of the Order, meaning “Valiantly bear the cross” or, in the Daughters’ translation, “With heart, mind, and spirit, uphold and bear the cross.”

You're welcome, AL.  The Marston family motto is "Magnanimiter Chucem Sustine".  Chuchem is a corruption of 'crucem' in Latin meaning The Cross.
