The ancient Normans that arrived in England following the Conquest of 1066 are the initial ancestors from which the many generations of the Fauntalroy family have grown. The name Fauntalroy was given to a member of the family who was a defender of the king. Less a nickname than a motto adopted as a name, Fontleroy translates roughly from the Old French as defend the king. The motto would have been rendered Defendez le Roi in French.

Fauntalroy Early Origins



The surname Fauntalroy was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Fauntalroy Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Fauntalroy has been recorded under many different variations, including Fontleroy, Fauntleroy, Fautleroy, Fantlaroy and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Fauntalroys were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: James Fontleroy who settled in Boston in 1679; R. Fontleroy settled in Carolina in 1872.
