Suttherey is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Suttherey family lived in Lincolnshire, at Sotebi, from which their name is derived. The surname Suttherey 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.

Suttherey Early Origins



The surname Suttherey 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.

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Suttherey arrived in North America very early: 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..
