The name Havasy has a history dating as far back as the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name for a person associated with a male goat, perhaps through ownership of such an animal or a perceived physical or tempermental resemblance to that animal. The surname Havasy is derived from the Old English word hæfer, which means he-goat. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Havasy, or a variant listed above: Dr. D. Havers settled in New Orleans in 1822; John Havers arrived in Philadelphia in 1868.
