The Arkebalde Surname comes from the Norman French given name Archambault, which could also be found in more "Germanic" forms such as Arcenbaldus and Arcebaldus. The name came to British Isles in the wake of the Norman invasion of 1066.

Arkebalde Early Origins



The surname Arkebalde was first found in throughout Southern England. As a personal name, Arkebalde can be found in the Domesday Book (1086) as Erchenbaldus, Arcenbaldus, and Arcebaldus. The first record of a Arkebalde surname appears to be Robert Archenbold, recorded in the Pipe Rolls for Gloucester in 1210.

Arkebalde Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Archbold, Archbald, Archibaldson, Archibald, Archibold, Harchbald, Arkanbaldus, Archebald and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Arkebalde or a variant listed above: James Archibald, who arrived in Nova Scotia in 1627; George Archibald, who received a land grant in Virginia in 1676; David Archibald who arrived in Truro, N.S. before 1800.

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: Ut reficiar
Motto Translation: That I may be replenished.
