Origin of the Name Gamble

The origin of the name Gamble was found in the archives. The name Gamble is ultimately of Swedish origin and is derived from the word 'gamal' meaning 'old'. There are a number of variants of this name including Gambell, Gamboll, Gambel, Gammell, Gammon and Gambles. From England the name spread 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 Huttred Gamelli of Northumberland who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. An Elena Gamyll was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. In Ireland the name was established both in Ulster Province and in County Cork during the seventeenth century. The Hearth Money Rolls of 1663 for the northern Counties records 18 Gamble families. In modern times this name and its variants are still mostly found in Ulster .
The Gamble 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 Gamble descendants.
