An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Bantle comes from when the family resided in one of the many places called Bentley. These included parishes in the counties of Suffolk, Hampshire, Warwickshire, Derby, and Essex, as well as a myriad of small hamlets throughout the counties of England. The surname is derived from Benet-legh which literally means the field of Benedict.

Bantle Early Origins



The surname Bantle was first found in Lancashire and Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bantle or a variant listed above: William Bentley who sailed aboard the "Free Love" in 1624 from England, who settled in Virginia; Mary Bentley settled in New England in 1635; Henry Bentley settled in Virginia in 1650.

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: Viva ut vivas
Motto Translation: Live that you may live forever.
