The Anglo-Saxon name Ivaney comes from its first bearer, who was a person who because of their personal attributes and characteristics was referred to as Ivy. In this case the nickname was originally derived from an old Christmas game, where Ivy-girl was the antagonist. This name signifies a young maiden. Often nicknames described strong traits or attributes that people wished to emulate in a specific animal. In the Middle Ages, anthropomorphic ideas, which attributed human qualities and form to gods or animals, were held about the characters of other living creatures. They were based on the creature's habits. Moreover, these associations were reflected in folk tales, mythology, and legends which portrayed animals behaving as humans.

Ivaney Early Origins



The surname Ivaney was first found in Huntingdonshire where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Ivaneys to arrive in North America: Nicholas Ivany settled in St. John's, Newfoundland, in 1755; George Ivymy settled at Trinity in 1757; James Ivamy settled in Bonaventure in 1788; George Ivamy settled in Port Wrexton in 1825.
