Early Origins of the Fauconnet family


The surname Fauconnet was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1327 at Workington when they held lands.

Fauconnet Spelling Variations


Fauconnet has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Spelling variants included: Falcon, Falken, Faucon, Faulcon, Fulchon and others.

Migration of the Fauconnet family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Fauconnet family to the New World and Oceana


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 Fauconnets to arrive on North American shores: Alexander Falcon, who came to Virginia in 1620; Francis Falcon, who was naturalized in Alabama in 1845; and Jacob Falcon, a bonded passenger who arrived in America in 1745..

The Fauconnet Motto

The Fauconnet 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: Vis, courageux, fier
Motto Translation: Strong, brave, proud.
