Marbury is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest brought to England in 1066. The Marbury family lived in Cheshire, at the manor of Marbury, from whence they took their name.

Marbury Early Origins



The surname Marbury 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.

Marbury Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Marbury are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Marbury include Marbury, Marburie, Marberrie, Marberry, Merbury, Marburry, Marburrie, Marbery, Marberie and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Marbury, or a variant listed above:
