Early Origins of the Alveston family
Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1160 when Jukel de Alvertun held estates in that shire.

Migration of the Alveston family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Alveston surname or a spelling variation of the name include: James Alverson, who settled in Ontario in 1871; John Alverson, who came to Wisconsin in 1860; Teleife Alverson, who arrived in Virginia in 1704; Halvor Halversen, who arrived in New York, NY in 1837.
