An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Maxey was first found in Northampton
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 estates in that shire.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Maxey, Maxie, Max, Maxy, Maxse, Maxsey and others.
