HANBURY Family History

This unusual and interesting surname has two origins; firstly, it may be an Anglicized form of the Gaelic O hAinmhire, the prefix "O" denoting male descendant of, plus "Ainmire" meaning freedom from levity, from "mire", levity. Secondly, it may be of Anglo-Saxon origin, a locational name from the places called Hanbury in Staffordshire or Worcestershire, which derive from the Olde English pre 7th Century phrase "aet thaem hean byrg", at the high fortress. In some cases it may also be from Handborough in Oxfordshire, which is apparently so called from the Olde English byname "Hagena", hawthorn, plus "beorg", hill.
