Husbyn is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is a name for a peasant farmer. The name was originally derived from the Old English husband, which meant one who tills soil. The modern connotations of the word appeared much later.

Early Origins of the Husbyn family


The surname Husbyn was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where lands were granted to them by Duke William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Husbyn Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Husbyn has been recorded under many different variations, including Husband, Husbands, Husbants, Husborne and others.

Migration of the Husbyn family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Husbyns were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Thomas and Mary Husband, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Samuel Husbants, who settled in Barbados in 1675 with his wife and servants; Christopher Husband, who settled in Maryland in 1731.
