Osboldstome is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived 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."

Osboldstome Spelling Variations

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 Osboldstome 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.
