DEAR RITA,
IM A DAVILA FROM THE SOUTH TEXAS REGION. MY FAMILY IS ORIGINALY FROM THE MONTERREY AREA. SPECIFICLY MONTEMORELOS AND TERAN N.L. MY FATHER STILL KNOWS SOMEWHAT OF HIS FAMILY IN THE AREA. IM DOING A MASSIVE RESEARCH ON MY FAMILY TREE. HOW LONG IT WILL BE BEFORE THE COMPLETION?,NOT QUITE SURE. ID BE WILLING TO SHARE SOME INPUT ON THE RESULTS OF MY RESEARCH IF YOUD LIKE. JUST GIVE SOME FEEDBACK AT MY ADDRESS AND I WILL FEED YOU BACK SOME INFO AS I GO. I HAVE STUDIED THE NAME DAVILA. IVE DISCOVERED TO LINKS. THE FIRST IS FROM ITALY. ITS SPELLED D'AVILA. THE OTHER IS FROM SPAIN IS DE AVILA AND I BELIEVE IT IS FORM THE SAME ORIGIN. IT COULD BEEN BROUGHT TO SPAIN BY THE ROMANS AT THE HEIGHT OF THEIR EMPIRE. IF YOU LOOK AT THEIR SPELLING D'AVILA AND DE AVILA IT COULD BE THEIR SPELLING IS DIFFERENT BUT THEIR PRONOUNCIATION IS THE SAME. IM CURRENTLY TRYING TO FIGURE IF THEY ARE RELATED TO THE WORD VILA., OR VILLA AS IN THE COUNTRY HOUSE. I KNOW IN SPAIN THEY WERE NAMED AFTER THE TOWN THEY LIVED IN AND THERES IS A TOWN NAMED AVILA. I HEARD SOMETHING SIMILAR ABOUT ITALY I WILL GIVE YOU THE SCOOP IF YOUD LIKE. LIKE I ONCE SAID IVE JUST STARTED MY FAMILY TREE. SO IF THERES ANYTHING I CAN HELP YOU JUST SAY SO.
