The name Chenerey reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Chenerey family lived in Essex. The family was originally from St. Ceneri, Normandy, and it is from this location, where the Chenerey family lived prior to the invasion of England, that the surname was originally derived.

Chenerey Early Origins



The surname Chenerey was first found in Essex where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Chenerey Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Chenerey family name include Chenery, Chinnery, Chinnerey, Chinner and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Chenerey family to immigrate North America: Rebecca Chinnery who settled in New England in 1756; George Chinery arrived in Philadelphia in 1876.
