Last name origins & meanings:
- French form of Aubrey, also a variant spelling of this found
in English. In French-speaking Canada, Aubry is found as a
Frenchification of O’Brennan among the Irish who fought
alongside the French against the English in the mid 18th century; they
found it expedient to adopt a French identity after the defeat at the
Plains of Abraham.
- An Aubry, also called La Brière, from Normandy, France, was
recorded in Canada in 1666; another, also called Thecle, from Dublin,
was married in New France in 1670.
