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

Rasberie Early Origins



The surname Rasberie 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



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 Rasberie or a variant listed above: 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.
