The name Barrentine arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Barrentine family lived in parishes at Cambridge, Berkshire, Somerset and Gloucester. Their original family seat was at Barentin in Normandy, and they were one of a group of families that draw their name from this location.

Barrentine Early Origins



The surname Barrentine was first found in Cambridge and Lincolnshire where they have held a family seat from very ancient times. Barrington or De Barenton was located near Caudebec, Normandy. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Barrentine Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Barrington, Barentin, Berrington, Berington, Berinton, Barenten, Barenton, Barentine, Barentyn, Barrinton, Barrenkton, Barringston and many more.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Barrentine or a variant listed above were: Abigail Barrington who settled in Barbados in 1664; Isaac Barrington settled in Barbados in 1654; Robert Barrington settled in Virginia in 1677; Benjamin Barrington settled in North Carolina in 1701.

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: Ung durant ma vie
Motto Translation: The same while I live.
