Iveson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Iveson was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the baptismal name Ivar, derived from the Old French name Ivar, which arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Iveson was also derived from the Saint Ives, whose name was also found as St. Ives in Huntingdonshire.

Early Origins of the Iveson family

The surname Iveson was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Iveson migration to the United States

In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Ivesons to arrive on North American shores:
