The origins of the Huckerby name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family 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 Huckerby lived near an area that was a market place.

Huckerby Early Origins



The surname Huckerby 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Huckerby family emigrate to North America: 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.
