Twambly History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Twambly reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Twambly family lived in Cheshire, at Twemlow.

Early Origins of the Twambly family


The surname Twambly was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times as Lords of the manor of Hatherton in that shire. Conjecturally they are descended from William Malbank who was holder of the village of Hatherton at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086, a census initiated by William the Conqueror after his conquest of England in 1066 A.D.

Twambly Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Twambly family name include Twemloe, Twemlow, Twemlowe, Twamley and others.

Migration of the Twambly family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Twambly family to immigrate North America: Andrew Twamley who landed in North America in 1700.
