CHEEVERS Family History

This interesting name is of Old French origin, and derives from the Old French "chievre", Anglo-Norman French "chivere, chevre", she-goat, from the Latin "capra", used either as an occupational name or a nickname. The term was introduced into England after the Norman Conquest of 1066, and the surname from this source is distinguished by being first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name may be a metonymic occupational name for a goat-herd, or a nickname for someone considered to be particularly stubborn, or who was possessed of goat-like agility.
