Family 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.
