Avery Genealogy & History

Avery is an unusual English name of uncertain origin. The meaning may be "elf-ruler", derived from Old French "Aubri", which comes from the Germanic "Alberic" ("alb" meaning elf; "ric" meaning power), or "elf-kingdom" from the Old English personal name "Aelfric", or "every" from Anglo-Norman "Evreux", or "bird-keeper" from Latin "Aviarius". Avery is found in France as a county in Normandy and in Navarra (Northern Spain) where the House of Evreux ruled in 1328-1441. Avery family history in England includes a family seat in Northumberland in ancient times. A coat of arms was granted in 1579 to the Warwickshire branch. American Avery genealogy dates to the 1630s.
