Talemox is a name whose history is entwined with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name for a person who habitually wore a knapsack or other type of pack carried on the back. The surname Talemox is derived from the Old French word talemache, which means knapsack. Nickname surnames often referred to the bearer's favored style of clothing.

Early Origins of the Talemox family


The surname Talemox was first found in Suffolk where, according to Doctor Bosworth, they were amongst the first Angles that settled in Suffolk. On their manor house at Bentley, near Ipswich there was the following inscription "Before the Normans into England came, Bentley was my seat, and Tollemache was my name." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Talemox family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Talemox family to the New World and Oceana


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 Talemox family emigrate to North America: William Tallmarsh settled in Jamaica in 1722; William Talmadge settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630 with his wife; Thomas Talmadge settled in Salem, Massachusetts with his wife in 1630.

The Talemox 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: Confido conquiesco
Motto Translation: I trust and am contented.
