InnleggSkrevet: 14 Aug 2004 02:59:32    Tittel: NORMAN SETTLEMENT IN BRITAIN Svar med Sitat

Hello eveyone,

I believe that my family name Jarvis is derived from the Norman Gervaise and as all ancestors found in my genealogy search to date have been in Gloucestershire I'm wondering if there is any information available showing Norman settlements in that county and associated names.

Regards to all,

Colin Jarvis

Get hold of a copy of the Domesday book for Gloucestershire. There are
modern translations available. Google?

"Tim and all:

He should get the Penguin Domesday. It's out in paperback. Then he can look
to his heart's content.

As others will confirm, tracing descent from an early Norman immigrant to
England is very difficult because of the comparative rareness of evidence in
the century following the Conquest. (Also, in general there's no substitute
for working systematically backwards, rather than looking for people of the
same name some time before those you've traced.)

For what it's worth, the name Gervaise seems to be surprisingly uncommon
among the early Normans. In Keats-Rohan's "Domesday People" (a collection of
Domesday tenants arranged alphabetically by Christian name) there don't seem
to be any at all, unless they're hidden away under an unusual spelling. In
the same author's "Domesday Descendants" (covering the century after 1066,
and arranged alphabetically by surname), there are just two under "Filius
Gervasii" (son of Gervaise) - a Benedict of Wimbleton [apparently now
Wombleton, Yorkshire], active with his father around 1140, and a William,
who held land at Cople [Bedfordshire] in 1166.
