Aubreyson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Aubreyson is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Aubreyson family 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.

Early Origins of the Aubreyson family

Aubreyson Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Aubreyson has been recorded under many different variations, including Aubrey, Aubry, Aubrie, Aubery, Awbrey, Awbry and others.

Migration of the Aubreyson family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Aubreysons were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: 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.

The Aubreyson 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.
