An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Faulknor was derived from 'falconer,' which in turn, was derived from the Old French word 'faulconnier,' a term of office for one who breeds or trains falcons and hawks for sport. Accordingly, one of the first records of the name was Matheus the falconarius (falconer) who witnessed a charter by Earl Davis c. 1202. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Faulknor Early Origins



The surname Faulknor was first found in Angus, where early records revealed Gulielmus Auceps (William the falconer) was granted lands to the kirk (church) of Marington or Maryton c. 1200. Robert le Faukener or Fauconer of Kincarydn en Miernes rendered homage to Edward I in 1296. His seal bears a falcon killing a small bird. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Faulknor family, or who bore a variation of the surname Faulknor were Thomas, Robert, John, James, Alexander, Patrick, and Samuel Faulkner, all settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1754 and 1878; Thomas Faulkner settled in Virginia in 1663.

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: Vive ut vivas
Motto Translation: Live that you may live for ever
