For Drury see chart Nichols Bibliotheca Topographica Brittannica, Vol. 5, p. 115 Ref: Some Prominent Virginia Families p 373 The Berkeley Family - The name Berkeley comes from two words, the Danish and Old English word "Birke," meaning birch (one impress left on England by the Danes), and the word "ley," "lay" or "lea," meaning meadow; a grassy, flat pasture land, as a lay for cattle. These two words were compounded into the word "Berkeley," meaning ...meadow. In the early days, when men had but one name such as John or Henry, they were more specifically designated by the place at which they dwelt, such as John of the Birk-ley, finally contracted into John Berkeley, the name of the place being adopted as the family name. And thus evidently came the Berkeley family name. In Gloucestershire, England, near the banks of the Seven River, seventeen and a half miles by rail southwest of Gloucester, and one hundred and one miles west by north of London, in the "Vale of Berkeley," which consists of rich meadow pasture land, lies for ancient town of Berkeley, and on an eminence to the southeast is "Berkeley Castle," built in the reign of Henry I, and of the ruins of a nunnery which had been in existence some time before the Norman Conquest. This castle is today one of the most perfect specimens of Norman style in Great Britain. In the 1100s Henry II granted this castle to Robert Fitzhardinge, with those descendants it has ever since continued, they having held the title ..of Berkeley from 1259, and Earl and Viscount from 1679. Ref: 975.5 D2p Vol. 1-2 Some Prominent Virginia Families The "Imperial Reference Library, Encyclopedic Dictionary and ..of the World," Vol. I; "Chambers Encyclopedia," Vol. II; "Encyclopedia Brittanica," Vol. III; and "Lives of the Berkeleys," by John Smyth of Nibley, covering the period from 1066 to 1618, "Berkeley Castle," by George Charles Grantley Fitzhardinge Berkeley, published 1836. It is said that before the Norman Conquest of 1066, the Berkeley family was of some importance in Gloucestershire; that they ...with Harold at Hastings, and for years afterwards resisted William of Normandy with the other lords of Western England, and during the reign of Henry II, this castle was in the possession of Eva Berkeley, all of the men who would have been entitled to the castle having died and been killed in the numerous wars and insurrections. A descendant of Maurice Fitzhardinge, a knight, who came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066, married Eva Berkeley, and was granted Berkeley Castle by Henry II (England then being under the feudal system), and took the name of Berkeley, from which union came the present Berkeley family. Thus it would be necessary, to trace back the lineage of Maurice Fitzhardinge, to go beyond 1-3 (presumably about the time he was born), for the paternal side of his union. Eva Berkeley's line no doubt ran back before 1000, under the name of Berkeley (the ancient origin of the name).
