DROVER Family History

This rare name is of early medieval English origin, and derives from an occupational surname given in the first instance to someone employed as a drover, one who drove herds of cattle or sheep to market, for example. The name derives from the Middle English term "drover", a development of the Olde English pre 7th Century "draf", a derivative of "drifan", to drive, with the addition of the agent suffix "-er", indicating "one who does or works with". In Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", Act 11 Scene 1, Benedick remarks: "Why, that's spoken like an honest drovier; so they sell bullocks".
