The ancestors of the bearers of the Huckabey family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found 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 Huckabey lived near an area that was a market place.

Huckabey Early Origins



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

Huckabey Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Huckabey include Huxtable, Hucstable, Huckstable, Hokestaple and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Huckabey or a variant listed above: 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.
