Re: Overy family London
I think you took my comment, out of contex, I am simply saying that the origin of the OVERY surname for the English version, has never derived from the French Hugeunot name Ouvry. When you state the origin of the Overy surname is from the French Huguenot Ouvry, you are indeed wrong! It maybe the case with your surname, but not mine. When you are on a message board, Overy Family Genealogy, you can't really make that statement of the origin of the name. My Overy surname, dates back to John Overie "The Ferryman"My surname means over-the-ree or over the water.John the Ferryman is a well known tale around England, dating back to about 1100 AD. I meant no disrespect by my comments, I see this on just about every genealogy message board, for the surname Overy. We have your Overy surname, my Overy surname, and there's Overy's from SUSSEX England, I don't really know where the Sussex Overy's come from, perhaps your lineage?Well happy hunting and have a great Veterans Day!!
