IVEY Family History

Recorded in several forms as shown below, this is an English surname which owes something to pre 7th century Norse-Viking, Anglo-Saxon, and Norman French origins. Firstly, it may be derived from the Norman personal name "Ivo", from the word ifar meaning a long bow made from the supple wood of the yew tree. This was a popular name in Normandy and Brittany, and was introduced into England at the time of the Conquest of 1066, perhaps reinforcing the Olde English pre 7th Century names of Ifa or Iva which mean the same. The second origin is locational from a place called Ivoy in Normandy...
