The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Haverale family name to the British Isles. They lived the Old French word Avril, meaning April. The name would have initially been given to a child born in the month of April.

Haverale Early Origins



The surname Haverale was first found in Gloucestershire where they were granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. They were conjecturally descended from a Norman noble, Avril, who landed with William the Conqueror.

Haverale Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Averell, Averall, Avrill, Avril, Averel, Abrill and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Haverale or a variant listed above: Mr. Averel, aged 36; who landed in New York State in 1820; Alexander Averell landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1866; followed by Arthur Averell in 1878.
