Where did the English Newberry family come from? What is the English Newberry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Newberry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Newberry family history?The Newberry surname is a habitational name from any of the many places called Newbury, such as Newbury in Berkshire. These place names are derived from the Old English elements "ne-owe," meaning "new," and "burh," meaning "fortified town."
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Newberry include Newbery, Newberry, Newbury and others.
First found in Berkshire, where the first on record was Godwin de Neweberia listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1190.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled 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 ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Newberry or a variant listed above:
