IVORY Family History

This interesting and long-established surname has two distinct possible sources, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly, Ivory may be of Norman-French origin, and a locational name from Ivry-la-Bataille in Eure, Normandy, so called from Gallo-Roman personal name "Eburius", a derivative of "ebur", ivory, and the local suffix "-acum", village, settlement. The family "de Ivery" are believed to de descended from Rodolph, half-brother to Richard the First, Duke of Normandy, who was awarded the Castle of Ivery for killing a monstrous boar while hunting with the Duke.
