Aylworth is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Aylworth family lived in Warwickshire where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Kineton.

Aylworth Early Origins



The surname Aylworth 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]

a survey of England initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D. This Norman held his land from the King, and the estates were originally called Quintone, a market village.

Aylworth Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Aylworth, Aylesworth, Ayleworth, Ailsworth, Alesworth, Aleworth, Ailworth, Hailworth and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Aylworth or a variant listed above: William Alesworth who settled in Virginia in 1654; Edward Aleworth, settled in Somers Islands in 1635; Francis Aleworth settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630.
