The name Antrobuss arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Antrobuss family lived in Cheshire, where they held lands and a family seat at Antrobus.

Antrobuss Early Origins



The surname Antrobuss was first found in Cheshire at Antrobus, a civil parish and village in the parish of Great Budworth, union of Runcorn and the hundred of Bucklow. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Entrebus. At that time, it was part of the Tunnendune hundred and there was land enough for one plough. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
Literally, the place name means 'within the woods' having been derived from the Norman-French Entre-bois. "Antrobus Hall and demesne belonged to the family of Antrobus from an early period till the reign of Henry IV., when it was sold to the Venables family. The estate was purchased in 1808 of Edward Townshend, Esq., of Chester, by Edmond Antrobus, Esq., a descendant of the former proprietors, and is now the property of Sir Edmund W. Antrobus, Bart."

Antrobuss Spelling Variations

Antrobuss Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Anthrobus, Antrobus, Antrobuss, Entrobus and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Antrobuss or a variant listed above:

  • William Antrobuss went to Philadelphia in 1858

Motto

Motto



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: Dei memor, gratus amicis
Motto Translation: Mindful of God.
