Harvey / Hervey

Origen: Normando. The ancestors of the Harvey family arrived in England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Harvey came from the Breton personal name Aeruiu or Haerviu. It is composed of the elements haer, which means battle or carnage, and vy, which means worthy. The name was commonly introduced to England in its Gallic form Herve. First found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Harvey in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought to Ulster Province by settlers from England, especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic O'hAirmheadhaigh Sept of County Galway sometimes used Harvey as the anglicized version of their name.

Los Harveys irlandeses en su mayoría son de orígen inglés, y la familia más destacada de este apellido en Irlanda es la de Bargy, en Co. Wexford. Había otro Clan distinguido pero poco numeroso asentado en Kilmacduagh, en Co. Galway, y al anglicanizar su apellido, que en irlandés era O´Hairmheadaigh, adoptó el de Harvey. O´Hart dice que los Garvey, que han anglicanizado su apellido llamandosé ahora Harvey, descienden de Cairbiadh, que es el Nº 101 en el pedigree de los Madden, que son de la línea de Heremon.

Variantes: Harvey, Hervey, Hervie, Harvie y otros.
