Marbury Coat of Arms / Marbury Family Crest

This surname MARBURY was a locational name 'of Marbury' a parish in County Chester, three miles from Whitchurch. A locational name usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. The original bearer would take his name from the village, town or the area where he dwelt. This name would identify his whole family, and would follow them wherever they moved This name was also of the occupational group of surnames and at Westminster in 1385 Thomas Canon (marbrer) was paid ]30 6s and 8d for making stone images in the likeness of kings, to stand in the Great Hall. Marble was also used for paving in churches and temples. In 1312 Adam le Marbrer undertook to pave part of St Paul's with squares of marble. Following the Crusades in Europe a need was felt for a family name. This was recognized by those of noble blood, who realised the prestige and practical advantage that it would add to their status. Early records of the name mention Edward Marbuyr who was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379, and Thomas Marburye, appears in County Lancashire in 1400. John Marbery and Alice Marbery were married in London in 1545. William Marburie of County Cheshire, registered at Oxford University in the year 1610. Baptised. Rebecca, daughter of Lewes Marbury, at St. Thomas the Apostle, London in 1627. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another.
