The origins of the Orlebarre name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the settlement of Orlingbury in the county of Northamptonshire. The place name literally meant "hill associated with a man called Ordla", derived from the Old English personal name + ing. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
The surname Orlebarre belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Orlebarre Early Origins



The surname Orlebarre was first found in Orlingbury, a village and civil parish between the towns of Kettering and Wellingborough in Northamptonshire. The place dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Ordinbaro. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

By 1202, the place name had evolved to Ordelinberg. The 2001 census lists the parish's population as 395 people.

The Great Migration

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 Orlebarre family emigrate to North America: George Orlbar who landed in North America in 1715.

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: Ora et labora
Motto Translation: Pray and work.
