    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name either from Emborough (Somerset), any of the three places called Hembury (Devon), or any of three place called Henbury (Gloucestershire, Cheshire, Dorset). Emborough is from Old English emn ‘flat-topped’ + beorg ‘mound or hill’, while Henbury in Gloucestershire comes from Old English hēah ‘high’ + burh (dative byrig) ‘fortified place’. Henbury in Chesire has an uncertain first element, possibly Old English hæmed ‘community’.

    English (of Norman origin): variant of Emery 1.
