An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Nethery surname is derived from the Middle English words "nether(e)," meaning "lower," and "cot," meaning "cottage." It was most likely a habitational name created from any of several places so named; such as Nethercott in Oxfordshire, Nethercote in Warwickshire, or Nethercott in Devon.

Nethery Early Origins



The surname Nethery was first found in Northampton and Oxfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1208 when Ern de Nethercot held estates in Oxfordshire.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Netherys to arrive on North American shores:
