Maleveray is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the name Mauleverer, which at the time of the Norman Conquest, was the name of a noble Norman family.

Maleveray Early Origins



The surname Maleveray was first found in the North Riding of Yorkshire where they held a family seat at Arncliffe Hall. They are descended from Sir Richard Mauleverer who accompanied Duke William of Normandy in his conquest of England in 1066 A.D. He was appointed master of the forests, chases, and parks north of the river Trent. Allerton-Mauleverer in the West Riding of Yorkshire was an ancient family seat. "This place obtained its distinguishing name from the family of Mauleverer, one of whom, named Richard, in the reign of Henry II. founded here an alien priory of Benedictine monks."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
"The lands [of Ingleby Arncliffe in the West Riding of Yorkshire] are chiefly the property of William Mauleverer, Esq., the descendant of the Norman Baron who came over with the Conqueror from Normandy, and whose family have continued here since that period." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Maleveray Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Maleveray family name include Mauleverer, Malouverer, Maleverer, Malleverer and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Maleveray family to immigrate North America: Jonathon Mauleverer who landed in North America in 1700.

Motto

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: En dieu ma foy
Motto Translation: My faith is in God.
