Womblie History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Womblie family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Cheshire, at Twemlow.

Early Origins of the Womblie family


The surname Womblie 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.

Over the years, many variations of the name Womblie were recorded, including Twemloe, Twemlow, Twemlowe, Twamley and others.

Migration of the Womblie family to the New World and Oceana


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 Womblie arrived in North America very early: Andrew Twamley who landed in North America in 1700.
