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


When the ancestors of the Haverel family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. 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.

Haverel Early Origins



The surname Haverel 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.

Haverel Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Haverel has been recorded under many different variations, including Averell, Averall, Avrill, Avril, Averel, Abrill and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Haverels were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: 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.
