(HOUARN BEV > HUIARNVIU) (HAEARN VIU > HAARNBIU)

This name derives from the Breton and Welsh “(Houarn Bev > Huiarnviu) / (Haearn Viu > Haarnbiu)”, meaning “iron bright / blazing, battle worthy”. Harvey emerged as a family name in the English county of Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. Researchers have established that the first recording of the name Harvey was in Norfolk, whereby Robert Fitz-Harvey was granted lands by William the Conqueror for his distinguished assistance in the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
