Origins Available: English, French


When the ancestors of the Monier family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Herefordshire. The name, however, is a reference to the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Monnay in the department of Orne, Normandy.

Monier Early Origins



The surname Monier was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Monier Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Monier has been recorded under many different variations, including Money, Moneye, Monie and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Moniers were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
