Tailbey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Today's generation of the Tailbey family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Tailbey family lived in Lincolnshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Taillebois, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Old French "taillebosc," meaning "cut wood"; in this case, the name would refer to a wood-cutter. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Tailbey 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 Tailbeys to arrive on North American shores: John Talby, who immigrated to Salem, Massachusetts in 1639; Stephen Talby, who came to Boston in 1658; Mary Talpy and her husband, who settled in Boston, Massachusetts in 1735.
