Where did the English Mayberry family come from? What is the English Mayberry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mayberry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mayberry family history?

The ancestors of the Mayberry family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Cheshire, at the manor of Marbury, from whence they took their name.


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Marbury, Marburie, Marberrie, Marberry, Merbury, Marburry, Marburrie, Marbery, Marberie and many more.

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.

Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada.
