The Anglo-Saxon name Dewberry comes from when the family resided in the township of Duxbury, in the parish of Standish in the county of Lancashire.

The surname Dewberry was first found in Lancashire at Duxbury, a township, in the district chapelry of Adlington, parish of Standish, union of Chorley, hundred of Leyland. "Duxbury gave name at an early period to a family, of whom Adam, in the reign of Edward I., held a moiety of the town.'" [1] A later branch of the family was found in the township of Gransmoor in the East Riding of Yorkshire. There, W. D. Thornton Duesbery, Esq., originally of Skelton, near York is Lord of the Manor and he benevolently had a schoolroom built at his expense. [1]

Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Dewberry include Duxbury, Dewsbury, Dusebury, Dusbury, Jewsbury and others.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
