The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Aylsworth family, who lived in Warwickshire where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Kineton.

Aylsworth Early Origins



The surname Aylsworth was first found in Warwickshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Kineton. Conjecturally they are descended from a Norman noble who occupied this manor at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Aylsworth arrived in North America very early: William Alesworth who settled in Virginia in 1654; Edward Aleworth, settled in Somers Islands in 1635; Francis Aleworth settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630.
