WARE Family History

This is an ancient English name of two possible origins. The first is old English pre 7th Century and a developed form of "Waer", a nickname for a wary or prudent person as in the recording Peter le Ware of Gloucester in the Church Rolls of 1218, however, this is a rare origin. More likely is residence or employment at a Dam or Weir, particulary those which were associated with early fish farms, or where "flash locks" were in use to enable trading boats to pass up or down. The town of Ware in Hertfordshire was originally the site of such a dam, and is the locational origin of many nameholders.
