HEVEY Family History

Recorded in many forms as shown below this interesting surname is English but of French origins, of which it seems to have at least two possible sources. Firstly, it may be derived from the Norman personal name "Ivo", a short form of any of the various Germanic compound names with a first element "iv" (Old Norse "yr", the plural of "ifar") yew, bow a weapon generally 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 "Ifa, Iva".
