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.
The surname Mayberry 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.
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.

Many English families left England
, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad.
