The name Buckles is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the region of Buckley which was a parish in St. Albans in County Hertfordshire.
The surname Buckles was first found in Suffolk and Sussex where they held a family seat, some say, well before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Buckles has been spelled many different ways, including Buckell, Buckle, Bouckle, Buckles, Buckhill and others.

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: Nil temere
Motto Translation: Nothing rashly.
