Fivash History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Fivash family, who lived in Wiltshire, at the manor Viveash.

Early Origins of the Fivash family


The surname Fivash was first found in Wiltshire where they were Lords of the manor Viveash from early times, after the Norman Conquest in 1066. They were believed to be of Norman origin.

Fivash Spelling Variations

Migration of the Fivash family to the New World and Oceana


The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Fivash arrived in North America very early: Steven Vivesh who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1809; Francis Fiveash settled in Virginia in 1639.
