The ancestors of the Huckabee surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Huxtable in East Buckland in the county of Devon. The suffix staple was originally derived from the Old French word estaple when translated means a mart or market-place. Therefore the original bearer of the surname Huckabee lived near an area that was a market place.

Huckabee Early Origins



The surname Huckabee was first found in Devon, where the name could have been derived from the aforementioned Huxtable or from Hexworthy, a hamlet on Dartmoor.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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: William Huxtable, a bonded passenger, who arrived in America in 1744; William Huckaby, who came to America in 1764; John Huxtable, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1817.

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: Fide et marte
Motto Translation: By fidelity and military service.
