Austry Early Origins



The surname Austry was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir) in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. First mentioned as a county in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011, Bedfordshire's boundaries have survived virtually unchanged to this day. It was here. 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 13th century when they held estates in that shire. They held a family seat at Wood-end and Henbury.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Austrys to arrive on North American shores: James Astry, who arrived in St. Christopher in 1624; an no doubt others, who arrived along the eastern seaboard, from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
