The name Nalivery reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Nalivery family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Nalivery is based on the name Mauleverer, which at the time of the Norman Conquest, was the name of a noble Norman family.

Early Origins of the Nalivery family


The surname Nalivery was first found in the North Riding of Yorkshire where they held a family seat at Arncliffe Hall. They are descended from Sir Richard Mauleverer who accompanied Duke William of Normandy in his conquest of England in 1066 A.D. He was appointed master of the forests, chases, and parks north of the river Trent. Allerton-Mauleverer in the West Riding of Yorkshire was an ancient family seat. "This place obtained its distinguishing name from the family of Mauleverer, one of whom, named Richard, in the reign of Henry II. founded here an alien priory of Benedictine monks."

Nalivery Spelling Variations


It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Nalivery are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Nalivery include Mauleverer, Malouverer, Maleverer, Malleverer and many more.

Migration of the Nalivery family to the New World and Oceana


Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Nalivery, or a variant listed above: Jonathon Mauleverer who landed in North America in 1700.

The Nalivery Motto

The Nalivery Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: En dieu ma foy
Motto Translation: My faith is in God.
