The surname Farnboro was first found in West Berkshire at Farnborough, a small village and civil parish amongst the Berkshire Downs north of Newbury which dates back to c. 935 when it was first listed as Fearnbeorgan. By the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, the village was listed as Fermeberge. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Farnboros to arrive on North American shores: Eliz Farme, who came to Virginia in 1658; Thomas Farmborrough, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; and Benja Farmbrough, who settled in Virginia 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: Deus noster refugium
Motto Translation: Our God is our refuge.
