Where did the Spanish Robles family come from? What is the Spanish Robles family crest and coat of arms? When did the Robles family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Robles family history?

The distinguished surname Robles is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The original bearer of the name Robles, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and, during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Robles family originally lived in the village named Robles, which was located in the judicial district of Murias in the province of Leon. This place-name was originally derived from the Spanish word robles, which means oak, and it indicates that the originally bearer of this name resided near oak trees.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Robles, de Robles, Roble, Robleda, Robledo, de Robledo, Robledano, Robledillo, de Robledillo, Robreño, Robreno, Robreda, de Robreda, Robredo, de Robredo, Robredillo and many more.

First found in Castile, in north central Spain.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: De long travail, heureuse recompense
Motto Translation: From hard work, come great rewards.
