The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 added many new elements to an already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Worbelltoom family lived in Cheshire, at the village and parish of Warburton, which was acquired by the Duttons as early as temp. Henry II, but it was not until the reign of Edward I., or II., that this territorial name was assumed by Sir Peter de Dutton. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Worbelltoom Early Origins



The surname Worbelltoom was first found in Cheshire at Warburton, now part of Greater Manchester, where they were descended from Sir Peter de Dutton, a Crusade knight, who in turn was descended from Rollo, the first invader and Duke of Normandy in 890. His Family Crest "a Saracen's head is still borne by the Warburtons referring to the Holy Land, and probably gained by some heroic exploit in the expedition. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The source continues by referring to an earlier source: "This Galfrid lived in 1244. He was servynge his prynce, and vanquyshed a Sarrazin in combate - then begynnynge to seale with a Sarrasins's head" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Reader's Note: a seal(e) was typically an early form of a crest. Yet another source claims the family is descended from William of Eu, through Odard, nephew of Lupus, great Earl of Chester, who was a nephew of William the Conqueror. They were granted the barony of Dutton at the Conquest in 1066. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Domesday Book also lists the spelling of the place name as Wareburgetune. Literally, the place name means "farmstead or village of a woman called Waerburh," having derived from the Old English personal name + tun. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Worbelltoom Spelling Variations


Expand

Worbelltoom Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Warburton, Warbleton, Wareburton and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Worbelltoom or a variant listed above: Ann Warburton and her husband who settled in Virginia in 1656; Thomas Warbleton settled in Virginia in 1653(probably the husband of Ann); Edie Warburton settled in Maryland in 1718.

Motto

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: Je voil droyt avoyre
Motto Translation: I will have justice.
