Origin of the Name Ambrose

The origin of the name Ambrose was found in the archives. The name Amrbose has its origin with Saint Ambrose, 340-397 A.D., who was one of the four Latin 'Fathers of the Church', and who was the teacher of Saint Augustine. Variants of this name include Ambrouse and Ambross. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a William Ambroys, County Bedfordshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Johane William Ambrose, who was baptised in Saint James Clerkenwell, in the year 1567. In Ireland this name can be of immigrant origin, especially in Ulster Province. This name can also be derived from the Gaelic Mac Ambrois sept that was located in Counties Cork and Limerick . The County Wexford village of Ambrosetown is named after these families.
The Ambrose coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Ambrose descendants.
