As a surname it also appears with final -berry (compare Asberry ).habitational name from either of two places, Ashborough in Bromsgrove (Worcestershire) or Ashbury in Devon, derived from Old English æsc ‘ash tree’ + beorg ‘hill’ (the former name) and byrig, dative of burh ‘manor, fortified place’ (the latter name). It may also derive from Ashbury in Berkshire, but there is insufficient evidence to be sure that the surname derives from the Berkshire place.
