The lineage of the name Norbery begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in Norbury, in Cheshire. The first use of the place-name Norbury as a surname occured in the 12th century when Roger Bulkeley adopted the name of his manor in Norbury as his surname. The place-name Norbury is derived from the old English words north, which meant north, and bury, which meant fort or manor house. The place-name as a whole means "northern fort" and the surname means "dweller at the northern fort."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. 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 Norbery were among those contributors: John Norbury, who arrived in New York in 1721; Hester Norbury and her husband who settled in New England in 1750; Edward Norbury, who was sent to America in 1767.
