the Germanic ancestor of the word marshal is a compound made up of 'marhaz', meaning 'horse', which is related to the source of our word 'mare' and 'skalkaz', meaning 'servant', together meaning 'horse servant', hence 'groom'; the Frankish descendant of this Germanic word marhazskalk' is 'marahskalk' came to designate a high royal official and also a high military commander, not surprisingly so, given the importance of the horse in medieval warfare; the word passed into the period beginning in 800 A.D., in which we speak of Old French, after the Franks and their Germanic language had been fused with the surrounding.culture descended from the area of Roman controlled Gaul. When the Normans established a French speaking class of people in England, the Old French word came with them; the Middle English source of our word is first recorded as a surname in 1218 and the surname Marshal has been held by some famous people, but it is first recorded as a common noun with the sense 'high officer of the royal court' in the first English language proclamation of 1258 by the English King Henry VIII, after the Norman Conquest; 'marshal' was applied to this high royal official's deputies who were officers of courts of law and the word continued to designate various officials involved with courts of law and law enforcement, including the horseback-riding marshals we are familiar with in the United States of America
