There appear to be many spelling variants of the surname 'Mawbey'. Whether they all stem from the same historical source I am not able to say. I have decided to include them just in case there is a connection. The variant spellings are: MABE, MABEE, MABEY, MABIE, MABY, MARBY, MARBEY, MAUBY, MAWBOY, MAWBRAY, MAWLBY, MAYBEE, MAYBERRY, MAYBURY, MOORBEE, MOORBY, MOORBEY, MORBY, MORBEY, MOREBY, MOUBEY, MOWBY, MOWERBY, MOWBY, MOWBEY, MOWBRAY. MAWBY can be different or the same as MAWBEY.
