The history of the Auberrey family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Brecknock, Wales, where Sir Reginald Aubrey was granted lands in 1088. The name is topographic in origin and indicates that its original bearer once lived in a place planted with elder trees. The name also may be derived from a batismal name meaning "the son of Aubrey." In this case, the name would have been Albreda in the feminine form and Aubrey in the masculine form.

Auberrey Early Origins



The surname Auberrey was first found in Brecknock in Wales where Sir Reginald Aubrey was granted lands in 1189. According to historians the first records was of "Saint Aubrey of the blood royal of France".

Auberrey Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Aubrey, Aubry, Aubrie, Aubery, Awbrey, Awbry and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Auberrey or a variant listed above were: Andrew Aubrey who purchased land in Virginia in 1714; and by the mid-1800's the Aubrey family occupied territory in North Carolina, and Maryland. F.O. Aubrey settled in San Francisco, Cal. in 1853.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Solem fero
Motto Translation: I bear the sun.
