Similar to many French family names, the distinguished surname Albry is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Franks, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Albry is derived from the Old German given name "Alberic". The name was originally derived from the Latin word "Albericus", which is composed of the Anglicized elements elf and king.

Albry Early Origins



The surname Albry was first found in Berry, a former province until 1790 when it became a region in central France where the family held a family seat since ancient times.
