The ancestors of the bearers of the Osbaldstume family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in Osbaldeston, Lancashire. The place-name was recorded as Ossebaldistun c. 1200. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English personal name Osbald with the suffix tun, which means "farm," added. The place-name means "farm belonging to Osbald."

Osbaldstume Early Origins



The surname Osbaldstume was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Osbaldstume Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Osbaldstume include Osbaldeston, Osbaldeson, Osbaldston, Osburton and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Osbaldstume or a variant listed above: Robert Osbaldston, who settled in Maryland in 1741; Alexander Osburton settled in Virginia in 1636.

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: Constance et firm
Motto Translation: Perserverance and decision.
