Early Origins of the Tarrlton family
The surname Tarrlton was first found in Lancashire
where the family were first found in the manor of Aigburth. Tarleton is a parish, in the union of Ormskirk, hundred
of Leyland in Lancashire
. "This place either gave its name to, or received its name from, an ancient family who had possessions here in the reign of Richard II." CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
"The mention of the Tarleton family is interesting; in one way or another they were connected with Aigburth until the beginning of the nineteenth century, but the succession and connexion of the various Tarletons is not quite clear during the period." CITATION[CLOSE]

While there is no doubt of the origin of the name in this area, one of the first record of the name was Maien de Torleton who was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Gloucestershire in 1204. More than one hundred years later, Gilbert de Tarleton was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire in 1332. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Tarrlton 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: Elizabeth Tarleton and her husband settled in Barbados in 1679; B. Tarleton arrived in San Francisco in 1852; Henry Tarlton settled in New England
The Tarrlton 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: Post nubila phoebus
Motto Translation: After clouds, sunshine.
