Aveston History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Aveston family

The surname Aveston was first found in Warwickshire 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 1190 when William de Alveston held estates in that shire.

Aveston Spelling Variations

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Aveston family name include Aveston, Alveston, Averston, Alverston, Aveson and many more.

Migration of the Aveston 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 Aveston surname or a spelling variation of the name include: John Avesson, who settled in Reading, Maine in 1685; and Ann Maria Alvetson, who arrived in Virginia in 1849.
