An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Naresborowe come from when the family resided in the village of Knaresborough. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 these lands existed as noble property of the Saxons. After 1066, Serlo de Burgh received these lands as a gift from William the conqueror. The surname Naresborowe originally derived from early residents who adopted the title of this ancient village as part of their surname.

Naresborowe Early Origins



The surname Naresborowe was first found in North Yorkshire, at Knaresborough, an old and historic market town, spa town and civil parish in the Borough of Harrogate. The village dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Chenaresburg and literally meant "stronghold of a man called Cenheard," from the Old English personal name + burgh.

Knaresborough Castle is today a ruined fortress, but it too dates back to early Norman times when it was thought to have been built by a Norman Baron around c.1100. By 1205, King John took control of Knareborough Castle as he regarded Knaresborough as an important northern fortress.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Naresborowe or a variant listed above: a number of family members who settled in the New World before the 19th century.
