Welcome to the Himbury History website in which we are trying to record our Himbury ancestors. We are trying to find out where the Himbury name originated. This started with a desire to research our family tree and has expanded into an interest in the Himbury name in general as it seems to be relatively uncommon, in England anyway. We are aware that there are branches of the family in the U.S.A and Australia.

Please feel free to email us with any information you have regarding Himburys anywhere in the world. We would be interested in any family stories or traditions. Please view our family tree and if you think you can provide any additional information or relatives we would really like to hear from you.

Only substantiated information (documented) will be added to the tree. If you have a Himbury tree that doesn’t appear to be linked to ours we are still interested in receiving it as we can set that up as another branch of the family tree in the hope that at some point in the future we may find a link to a common ancestor!
