Auberville is a French commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region of north-western France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aubervillais or Aubervillaises.[1]

Geography[edit]

Auberville is located on the northern Normandy coast some 8 km east by north-east of Cabourg and 13 km south-west of Deauville. Access to the commune is by road D513 from Houlgate in the west which passes through the village and continues north-east to Villers-sur-Mer. The D163 branches off the D513 in the village and goes south to Branville. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Les Genets, Les Bruyeres, and Le Manoir. The north of the commune is forested along the coast with slopes down to the beach while the rest of the commune is farmland.[2]

Toponymy[edit]

The name was attested in the form Osbertivilla in 1082.[3] It came from the Germanic anthroponym Osbert[3] or alternatively from the Scandinavian Osbern[4] and the old French ville (from the latin villa) in its original sense of "rural domain".

History[edit]

Archaeological excavations have found Merovingian tombs.

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 487 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
