ALVARES Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Alvares, Alvares, Alvar, Alvaro, Alvarado, Alves, and the original Albarez, this Spanish and Portugese surname originates from the German tribes of some ancient repute known as the Goths or Vizigoths. These fierce tribes swept down from Eastern Germany in the 5th century a.d., causing the collapse of the Roman Empire. The Spanish Peninsula had been a province of Rome since the 1st century a.d., but the Goths conquered it in months. They were there for some three centuries until finally defeated by the Franks, but they left behind in Spain many reminders, not the least being the prominent surnames of that country.
