The origins the old family name Chaumbrae can be found within medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Chaumbrae family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Chaumbrae was an occupational name for a room attendant. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old French word "chambre," which means room.

Chaumbrae Early Origins



The surname Chaumbrae was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps, where this distinguished family has held a family seat from ancient times.

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: Altissimus nos fundavit
Motto Translation: Highest we founded
