Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, Norman French and other languages became incorporated into English throughout the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Walbert include Warburton, Warbleton, Wareburton and others.

First found in Cheshire at Warburton, now part of Greater Manchester, where they were descended from Sir Peter de Dutton, a Crusade knight, who in turn was descended from Rollo, the first invader and Duke of Normandy in 890. They are descended from William of Eu, through Odard, nephew of Lupus, great Earl of Chester, who was a nephew of William the Conqueror. They were granted the barony of Dutton at the Conquest in 1066. [1] The Domesday Book also lists the spelling of the place name as Wareburgetune. Literally, the place name means "farmstead or village of a woman called Waerburh," having derived from the Old English personal name + tun. [2]

In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Walberts to arrive on North American shores: Ann Warburton and her husband who settled in Virginia in 1656; Thomas Warbleton settled in Virginia in 1653(probably the husband of Ann); Edie Warburton settled in Maryland in 1718.

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: Je voil droyt avoyre
Motto Translation: I will have justice.
