The founding heritage of the Allywert family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Allywert comes from when one of the family worked as a keeper of a hall. The surname Allywert is composed of the elements hall, which denoted one who was employed at such a manor-house or hall, and ward, which was originally applied to one who was a watchman.

Allywert Early Origins



The surname Allywert was first found in Devon, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
