Baumbar History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Baumbar family
The surname Baumbar was first found in Lancashire, at Bamber-Bridge, an ecclesiastical district, in the chapelry of Walton-le-Dale, parish, and Lower division of the hundred, of Blackburn, union of Preston.  
Alternatively, the family could have originated in Bambrough, a parish, in the union of Belford, N. division of Bambrough ward and of Northumberland. "Bambrough, originally called Bebbanburg, was prior to the Conquest a royal burgh, and the residence of several of the kings of Northumbria. It sent two members to parliament in the 23rd of Edward I., and in the reign of Edward III. furnished one ship for the expedition against Calais. " 
Nearby is Bambrough-Castle, a township, in the parish, and N. division of the ward, of Bambrough, union of Belford. "This township is principally distinguished for its castle, built about the middle of the sixth century, by Ida, the first Anglo-Saxon king of Northumbria. In 642 it was besieged by Penda, King of Mercia, who, after an unsuccessful attempt to set it on fire, was compelled to retreat. " 
Thomas de Baumburgh (fl. 1332), was Clerk of the Chancery and Keeper of the Great Seal. He is mentioned in 1328 as then holding the living of Emildon in Northumberland.

Baumbar Spelling Variations
Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Baumbar family name include Bamber, Bambar, Bambere, Bamburgh and others.

Migration of the Baumbar family to Ireland
Some of the Baumbar family moved to Ireland, but this topic is not covered in this excerpt.
Migration of the Baumbar family
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Baumbar surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Robert Bamber who settled in Virginia in 1734; Margaret and Robert settled in New England in 1805.
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: Fortis et egregius
Motto Translation: Bold and excellent.
