The name Tabares is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. The name was taken on by someone who worked as a person who was known as the taborer,
the player on the small drum. Occupational
names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. These surnames were frequently derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products, in this case the tabor. These types of occupational
surnames are called metonymic surnames.

Migration of the Tabares family to the New World and Oceana
A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England
at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England
. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Richard Tabert settled in Jamaica in 1654; Ebert Taber from England
settled in New England
in 1709; B. C.W. Charles, H.E. H.H. and Mrs. S.F. Taber, all arrived in San Francisco in 1853.

The Tabares 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: Soles occidere et redire possint
