Awdryant Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules.

The recorded variations of Awdryant include Adrian, Adrien, Adrain, Awdryan, Adriance and others.

The Awdryant were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Christian Adrian, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1752; Sybriant Adrian to New York in 1759; P.
