Daughtrey Family HistoryThis name, with variant spellings Dawtr(e)y, Daught(e)ry, Daltr(e)y, Dealtry, Doughtery, Dowtry, and Ha(w)tr(e)y, is of Norman locational origin from Hauterive in Orne, so called from the Olde French "haute rive", meaning a high bank, the ultimate origin being the Latin "alta ripa". The surname from this source is first recorded in the latter half of the 12th Century, (see below). One, Robert de Halterida and a Philip de Hauteriue appear in "Documents of the Danelaw" circa 1155. The spellings Dautry and Dawtre are recorded in the 1379 "Poll Tax Returns of Yorkshire".
