Manthey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Manthey family

The surname Manthey was first found in Yorkshire 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 lands.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Manthey has been recorded under many different variations, including Mantaby, Mant, Mantabey, Mantebey and others.

Manthey migration to the United States

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Manthey or a variant listed above:
