Freboday Early Origins



The surname Freboday was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire seated at East Grinstead.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Freboday or a variant listed above: Paule Freebody, who came to Virginia in 1665; Charles Freebody, who arrived at Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1822; and Clarkson "Simon" Freebody, an English convict who arrived in New South Wales in 1790 aboard the "Surprise.".
