Early Origins of the Freebodee family
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.

Migration of the Freebodee family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Freebodee surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Paule Freebody, who came to Virginia in 1665; Charles Freebody, who arrived at Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1822; and Clarkson "Simon".
