The present generation of the Aullwith family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the parish of Aldworth, in the county of Berkshire. The name of that place derives from Old English words meaning old estate or farm.

Aullwith Early Origins



The surname Aullwith was first found in Berkshire, where this Saxon family of great antiquity held the lands and parish of Aldworth despite the Norman invasion and Conquest of 1066 by Duke William of Normandy.

Aullwith Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Aullwith include Aldworth, Aldworthy, Allworth, Allworthy, Alesworth, Alworth, Alworthy and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Aullwith were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Elizabeth Aldworth who landed in Bermuda with her brother Edward in 1635; where they started their plantations. They later moved to the mainland. Joseph and Richard arrived in 1848.
