The origins of the Hosburton name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Hosburton was originally derived from a family having lived in Osbaldeston, Lancashire. The place-name was recorded as Ossebaldistun c. 1200. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English personal name Osbald with the suffix tun, which means "farm," added. The place-name means "farm belonging to Osbald."

Migration of the Hosburton family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Robert Osbaldston, who settled in Maryland in 1741; Alexander Osburton settled in Virginia in 1636.

The Hosburton Motto

The Hosburton 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: Constance et firm
Motto Translation: Perserverance and decision.
