Iviormy is an ancient name dating from the times of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain.

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.

Migration of the Iviormy family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Iviormy were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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.
