The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Huxtabell come from when the family resided 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 Huxtabell lived near an area that was a market place.

Huxtabell Early Origins



The surname Huxtabell 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Huxtabell 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.
