An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Daves comes from when the family resided in the French region of Auvers or Auvers-le-Hamon. The name would have appeared there as D'Auvers, meaning "from Auvers."

Daves Early Origins



The surname Daves 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Daves or a variant listed above:
