When the ancestors of the Musslebrow family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Mid Lothian, at Musselburgh, from whence their name is taken.

Musslebrow Early Origins



The surname Musslebrow was first found in Mid Lothian where they held a family seat. Conjecturally they are descended from an unknown Norman noble who moved north to Scotland in the train of King David, Earl of Huntingdon, who invited many of his Norman friends north, and gave them lands in Scotland. They were granted lands in Musselburgh in the parish of Inveresk. John of Musselburgh was the first to settle there about 1160.

Musslebrow 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. Musslebrow has been recorded under many different variations, including Musselburgh, Mussleburgh, Muskilburgh, Musselburg, Musselborough, Musselborrow, Musselborow and many more.

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. Musslebrows were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Mathew Muskilburgh who landed in North America in 1766.
