Haverage is a name whose history is entwined with the ancient 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 Haverage 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.

Haverage Early Origins

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Haverage family emigrate to North America: Dr. D. Havers settled in New Orleans in 1822; John Havers arrived in Philadelphia in 1868.
