An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Davers surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the French region of Auvers or Auvers-le-Hamon. The name would have appeared there as D'Auvers, meaning "from Auvers."

Davers Early Origins



The surname Davers was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
