Hemboroe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Hemboroe is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from the Old French personal names Amauri and Emaurri. These are derived from the Old German personal name Amalric, which literally means work-rule.

Early Origins of the Hemboroe family


The surname Hemboroe was first found in Devon at Broadhembury which is also known as Hembury, a parish and former market-town in the union of Honiton. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Hembury is also the name of a Neolithic causewayed enclosure and Iron Age hill fort near Honiton in Devon and is thought to date back from the late fifth and early fourth century BC. Hembury Castle is an Iron Age Hill fort near Tythecott, south of Buckland Brewer. Some researchers believe that the name is related to the name Embury, but this is not the case as this name is a distinct Devon name whereas Embury hails from Somerset. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Hemboroe family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Hemboroes to arrive in North America: Thomas Hembrow, who sailed to Barbados in 1659; Thomas Hembrow to America 1665; Joseph Hembray to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1684; John Hembrough, who settled in Illinois in 1835.
