Rumble is an ancient Anglo-Saxon
surname that came from Rumbald, an Old German personal name
. This name came to England
in the wake of the Norman Conquest
in 1066, as King William encouraged the immigration from continental Europe of skilled tradesmen and artisans; many of these immigrants came from Germany
. Saint Rumwold (Rumbold) was a medieval infant saint in England
, said to have lived for three days in 662. He is said to have been full of Christian piety despite his young age, and able to speak from the moment of his birth, requested baptism, and delivered a sermon prior to his early death. Another Saint Rumbold (Rumold, Romuold) was an Irish or Scottish Christian missionary who was martyred near Mechelen by two men, whom he had denounced for their evil ways. St. Rumbold's Cathedral is found in Mechelen, Belgium and it is here that his remains are generally thought to be buried.

Migration of the Rumble family to the New World and Oceana
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 Rumble or a variant listed above:

The Rumble 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: Virtutis laus actio
Motto Translation: The praise of virtue is action.
