CONSTABLE Family History

This interesting name is of Old French origin, introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. The name derives from the Old French, and later Middle English "conestable, cunestable", from the Late Latin "comes stabuli", officer of the stable. The term was used in the Middle Ages as an occupational surname for a variety of officials, such as the law-enforcement officer of a parish, the chief officer of the household and army of a medieval ruler, or the governor of a royal fortress. Early examples of the surname include: Alice la Konestabli (1202, Lancashire); Clemens le Conestable (1273, Norfolk); and Margareta Constabille (1379, Yorkshire)...

We are based in Christchurch New Zealand. I would love to learn more about our lineage going back to England. I believe we have a link back to John Constable famous painter 1776-1834.
