Verey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Verey family

The surname Verey was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1100 when Roger Verer held lands.

Verey migration to the United States

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Verey were among those contributors:

Verey Settlers in United States in the 18th Century
  • Isaac Verey, who arrived in Virginia in 1701 [1]

Verey migration to Australia

Emigration to Australia followed the First Fleets of convicts, tradespeople and early settlers. Early immigrants include:

Verey Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
  • Felix H. Verey, aged 21, who arrived in South Australia in 1856 aboard the ship "Violet"
