The earliest origins of the family name Haversy date back to the Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name given to 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 Haversy 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.

Haversy Early Origins



The surname Haversy was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Dr. D. Havers settled in New Orleans in 1822; John Havers arrived in Philadelphia in 1868.
