Where did the English Huppert family come from? What is the English Huppert family crest and coat of arms? When did the Huppert family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Huppert family history?

The name Huppert was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the Norman personal name Hildebert, which is composed of the Germanic elements hild, which meant battle or strife, and berht, which meant bright or famous. One of the first records of the name was Hygbert, the Anglo-Saxon bishop of Lichfield. [1]


Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Hibbert, Hibart, Hibbard, Hibbart, Hibbet, Hibbets, Hibbett, Hibbotts, Hubert, Hubbert, Hubbard and many more.

First found in Cheshire where the Hibberts of Marple and Boirtles claim descent from Paganus Hubert who accompanied Richard Coeur-de-Lion (Richard the Lion Hearted) in the Crusade of 1190. [1]

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Huppert or a variant listed above were:

Huppert Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • David Huppert, who landed in America in 1850
  • Friedr Huppert, who landed in America in 1853
  • Gustav Huppert, who arrived in St Clair County, Illinois in 1882

Huppert Settlers in Canada in the 18th Century

  • Jacob Huppert, who landed in Canada in 1777-1783

Huppert Settlers in Canada in the 19th Century

  • Leonard Huppert, who arrived in Nova Scotia in 1825


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: Fidem rectumque colendo
Motto Translation: By cultivating fidelity and rectitude.
