Research into the Austerberry Name started in 1978.
The research has linked every Austerberry birth, marriage and death worldwide since 1550 into one family history chart.
Austerberry is from Old Norse 'Oestr-by' meaning 'east-place'. It is not uncommon in Scandinavian countries today.
In England it is found in East Yorkshire since about 1200, most early occurrences being in or near the village of Etton near Beverley.
Birth, Marriage and Death data is held on every known Austerberry who has lived since 1550 with some references back to 1166.
Data is also held from British and USA censuses, as well as transcriptions of old documents.
