The name Marbrow was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Marbrow family lived in Cheshire, at the manor of Marbury, from whence they took their name.

Marbrow Early Origins



The surname Marbrow was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from ancient times, as Lords of the manor of Marbury. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in the year 1086, these estates and village were held by William Malbank, who held them from Earl Harold.

Marbrow Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Marbury, Marburie, Marberrie, Marberry, Merbury, Marburry, Marburrie, Marbery, Marberie and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Marbrow or a variant listed above: Gilbert Marburie who settled in Virginia in 1622; Richard Marbury settled in Virginia in 1643.
