Where did the English Dewberry family come from? What is the English Dewberry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Dewberry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Dewberry family history?

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.


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.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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:
