AVERY Family History

This unusual and interesting surname is derived from the Middle English, Old French given name "Aubri", itself coming from the Germanic personal name "Alberic", composed of the elements "alb" meaning elf plus "ric", power, hence, "elf-ruler". It may also come from the much rarer female name "Albreda", composed of the Germanic elements "alb", plus "red", counsel, "elf-counsel". Finally, it may be derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Aelfric", composed of the elements "oelf", elf, plus "ric" meaning kingdom, hence "elf-kingdom". The surname dates back to the late 13th Century (see below). Further recordings include one John Aubri (1308) in the Hundred Rolls of Cambridgeshire...
