Today's generation of the Marburrey family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Marburrey family lived in Cheshire, at the manor of Marbury, from whence they took their name. However, we must look to Normandy to find the first record of the family. It was there that "Nicholas Merbury, Butler of the King, Normandy" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

was found 1180-1195.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Marburrey arrived in North America very early: Gilbert Marburie who settled in Virginia in 1622; Richard Marbury settled in Virginia in 1643.
