The name Ivemey was formed many centuries ago by the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name typically given to 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.

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: 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.
