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

Maybarry Early Origins



The surname Maybarry 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.

Maybarry Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Marbury, Marburie, Marberrie, Marberry, Merbury, Marburry, Marburrie, Marbery, Marberie and many more.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Maybarry name or one of its variants: Gilbert Marburie who settled in Virginia in 1622; Richard Marbury settled in Virginia in 1643.
