The ancestors of the Caver surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the lush region of Cove, in Suffolk.

Caver Early Origins



The surname Caver was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times in the two hamlets of North and South Cove in Suffolk which were held at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 by Count Alan of Brettagny. Conjecturally the name is descended from that source.
