An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The present generation of the Kingsberrey family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in one of the various parishes called Kingsberry, which had locations in the counties of Middlesex, Warwickshire, and Somerset.

Kingsberrey Early Origins



The surname Kingsberrey was first found in Lincolnshire. The family's earliest known family member is Sir Ralf of Bracebridge, who was born in 975 in Bracebridge, Lincolnshire, England. The first known family member to bear the surname "Kingsbury" was Adam de Kingsbury, who was born c. 1240 in Kingsbury, Warwickshire.

Kingsberrey Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Kingsberrey include Kingsberry, Kingsbury and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Kingsberrey were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Henry Kingsberry settled in Virginia in 1729; Henry Kingsbury settled in Boston in 1630 with his wife Margaret and son Henry, he later moved to Salem.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Prudens et innoccuus
Motto Translation: Wise and innoccuus
