Where did the English Cabbage family come from? What is the English Cabbage family crest and coat of arms? When did the Cabbage family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Cabbage family history?

Cabbage is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the Old English given name Cobbold.


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Cabbage has been recorded under many different variations, including Cobbold, Cobbald, Cubald, Cubold, Cubaldus, Carbould, Cobald, Cubbel, Cubaud, Corbold, Corbould, Cubill, Cobell and many more.

First found in Northamptonshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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 Cabbage or a variant listed above:

Cabbage Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • George Cabbage, who arrived in Maryland in 1676


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: Rebus angustis fortis
Motto Translation: Brave in adversity.
