The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Enderby come from when the family resided in the village of Enderby, in the counties of Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.

Enderby Early Origins



The surname Enderby was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, 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.

Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Enderby or a variant listed above:
