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

Early Origins of the Chinory family


The surname Chinory 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.

Migration of the Chinory family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Chinorys to arrive on North American shores: Rebecca Chinnery who settled in New England in 1756; George Chinery arrived in Philadelphia in 1876.
