First found in Warwickshire where they were anciently seated as Lords of the Manor of Kineton. Conjecturally they are descended from a Norman noble who occupied this manor at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book, a survey of England initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: William Alesworth who settled in Virginia in 1654; Edward Aleworth, settled in Somers Islands in 1635; Francis Aleworth settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630.
Aylesworth English: habitational name from a place in Cambridgeshire named Ailsworth, from an Old English personal name Ægel + Old English worþ ‘enclosure’.
