I am gary massey from belfast in northern ireland, my father tells me our name is french and that most masseys in northern ireland were originally french huguenots, they were protestants who fled france because of persecution. In 1685 Louis XIV of france declared protestantism to be illegal and huguenots either fled or were forced to convert to catholicism many went to other european countries and around 4000 emigrated to the north american colonies especially new york and virginia my own family came to ireland to work in the linen industry along the river lagan
I'm Payton Massey from Virginia! The original spelling was Massie, but when my grandfather joined the military one of the men made him change his name because it sounded "girly". My grandfather was born in Richmond, VA, and moved to Texas. Cool to know! :)
Teresa Macey of IL and Mo. Our Maceys were from Missouri and Nebraska, earlier from England altho my g-father said they were English and "Scotch-Irish."
Hi, I'd like to know how you all pronounce your name? Do you say Massey like mace-y or mass-ey like me?
hello, I am Abdul Massey from Pakistan
Hello! I'm Tia Jones-Massey from London. Apparently my grandad, Henry Massey was born on a boat that deported from the US which was headed over to Scotland so technically my Massey name originates from America. I pronounce it "Mass-ey".
I'm from Roswell NewMexico, so it is quite possible that the Massey name originated from another dimension or planet.
Am I the only one who spells it that way?
My great-grandfather was from New Orleans. The child of a black woman and a French Businessman.
