The name Havesay is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was 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 Havesay is derived from the Old English word hæfer, which means he-goat.

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 powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Havesay surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Dr. D. Havers settled in New Orleans in 1822; John Havers arrived in Philadelphia in 1868.
