The Rasberey surname is thought to have originally been a habitational name, taken on from Ratsbury in Lynton, Devon.

Rasberey Early Origins



The surname Rasberey was first found in Devon 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 1242 when Merioth Rabespree held estates in Devon.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Resburie, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Rasberry, who came to Georgia in the mid-18th century; A. S. Rasberry, who arrived on a ship at San Francisco in 1852.
