Origins of surname

Said to be particularly popular in Cornwall, this name is of Anglo-Saxon and Norman origins. It either comes from the personal name Ivo, related to the old word for a longbow, or the place name Ivoy, which is also derived from the longbow, or the yew from which it was made.

Early records

The surname first appeared in the St Helier baptism registers in the second decade of the 19th century
