Ausley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Ausley surname is thought to have been a habitational name, from a now lost place name in Southern England, perhaps from the name of the river name Ouse and the Old English "le-ah," meaning a "wood."

Early Origins of the Ausley family

The surname Ausley was first found in Salop (Shropshire) 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 1300 when they held in that shire.
