Massenburg Family History

Massenburg Name Meaning
Origin unidentified. This name is recorded in VA in the early 18th century. It may be an altered form of English Massingberd, the etymology of which is likewise uncertain. Reaney suggests Old Norse messing ‘brass’, ‘brazen’ + berd ‘beard’, but the early citations are from Sussex and Surrey, which were not areas of Norse settlement.
