The ancestors of the Yvanny family lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Yvanny was a name 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.

Migration of the Yvanny family to the New World and Oceana


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 Yvannys to arrive on North American shores: 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.
