England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Zachery family lived in Derbyshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Sacheverell, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
Early Origins of the Zachery family
Derbyshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Hopwell. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086, a survey initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D., the village of Hopwell was held by Ralph Fitzhubert from his overlord, the Bishop of Chester. Hopwell consisted of a village, a mill, 2 churches and a fishery. Conjecturally, it was from this source the Sechevarals are originated.

Migration of the Zachery 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 Zachery family to immigrate North America:

The Zachery Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: En bon foy
Motto Translation: In good faith.
