The name Huxtible has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a 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 Huxtible lived near an area that was a market place.

Huxtible Early Origins



The surname Huxtible 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



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Huxtible, 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.
