The name Iviormey comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for 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



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Iviormey were among those contributors: 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.
