Early Origins of the Farnbro family


The surname Farnbro 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]

This is by far the oldest village but others by the same name can be found in Hampshire, Greater London and in Warwickshire. The family name was first referenced in the year 1190 when Leford of Farmborough appeared on tax rolls.

Farnbro Spelling Variations


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. Farnbro has been spelled many different ways, including Farnborough, Farmborough, Farnborow, Farmborow, Farnbro, Farmbro, Farnburgh and many more.

Migration of the Farnbro family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Farnbros to arrive in North America: 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..

The Farnbro Motto

The Farnbro 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.
