The name Southaby reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Southaby family lived in Lincolnshire, at Sotebi, from which their name is derived. The surname Southaby is thus, a local name, which means it derived from the name of a place where members of the family once owned land or where they may have resided.

Early Origins of the Southaby family


The surname Southaby was first found in Lincolnshire where Ralph of Sotby held the village and church of Sotebi from the Bishop of Bayeux. This village church is still famous for its Norman chancel arch.

Migration of the Southaby family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Southabys to arrive on North American shores: Henry and Elizabeth Southey who settled in Virginia with their children Mary and Thomas in 1623; Dan Southerby settled in Virginia in 1653; Mary Southerby settled in New England in 1755..
