The ancestors of the name Allenby date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Allenby family lived in the Cumberland village of Allonby, which was also known as Ellonby. The first part of this settlement's name was originally derived from the Anglo-Norman word aguillon, meaning goad or spur. The second part of the settlement's name was the Old English word by, which means farm or settlement.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Allenby or a variant listed above:
