The name Monneye was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Monneye family 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.

Early Origins of the Monneye family


The surname Monneye 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.

Migration of the Monneye family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Monneye were among those contributors: Anne and her husband John Money settled in Baltimore in 1775; Roger Money settled in Barbados in 1664; Samuel Money settled in New Orleans in 1820; John Monie settled in Philadelphia in 1754..
