The name Monktoombe was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Monktoombe family lived in Yorkshire at Monckton, from whence their name derives.

Monktoombe Early Origins



The surname Monktoombe was first found in Yorkshire in the West Riding where they were anciently Lords of the Manor of Moor Monckton. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086 initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England in 1066, Moor Monckton was held by Richard son of Erfast, but the records of Monkton have been lost. The family derive their origin from Simon Monckton, who conjecturally was descended from Richard, the holder of the lands at the Domesday Survey. His lordship and manse was enjoyed by his descendants until 1326 when it was made into a nunnery and renamed Nun-Monkton, a curious play on words. The parish of Newbald in the East Riding of Yorkshire is of particular significance to the family at this time. "The Monckton family, ancestors of Viscount Galway, who is lord of the manor of South Newbald, were formerly seated here." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Monktoombe were among those contributors: William Monkton who landed in North America in 1750.

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: Faman extendere factis
Motto Translation: To extent fame by deeds.
