The Reresburay surname is thought to have been derived from the various places so named in Britain. There is a village of Risby in Suffolk that was founded in 979; as well as villages in Lincolnshire, and East Yorkshire.

Early Origins of the Reresburay family


The surname Reresburay was first found in the East Riding of Yorkshire at Risby, which is now a deserted village. However, the place name does date back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Risebi [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

. The surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Risby who was an unknown Norman noble who held the estates from the Archbishop of York. The place name literally means "farmstead or village among the brushwood or by a clearing." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
