My goal is to connect the George Ivey b:1790 to Sir Thomas Ivey b: 1570

Genealogical History of Ivey of Maidenhead: This ancient family of Celts derive their surname from the small fishing town and harbour of St. Ives in Cornwall. Founded in the V century, by the Irish woman martyr - St. Hya or Ia - who accompanied St. Piran on his missionary journey. This village, at the time of the Domesday, is shewn as but a small chapelry of Lelant, an unimportant member of the distant manor of Ludgvan. Of the few Christian inhabitants, adjacent to the chapelry - tempus Ed. III (A.D. 1004) - some adopted the style "de Ives" or "de Ivese" and, as was the custom in those days of little learning, the variation, in the spelling of a name, was not of consequence and in fact was frequently a device used for the differencing between father & son or families of the same blood. Consequently, the name is encountered in many forms of which the more common are - Ives, Ivese, Iveys, Ivez Ivie, Ivies, Ivease and Ivers. The legend of the present family derives from their early attachment to Hampshire where, from the time of the conquest until early XIV century their ancestors were seated. Hugh de Ivez & the lands of Minstead Minstead - Minstestede (XI cent.); Menestede (XV cent.). The parish of Minstead including canterton, London Minstead & Alum Green (formerly extra-parochial), contains 13 acres of land covered with water and 10,321 acres of land, of which 399 acres are arable, 1,263 are permanent grass and 2,832 woodland exclusive of the New Forest. Two streams, known as the Fleet Water & Bartley Water, flow through the parish in a south easterly direction. In Canterton Glen, upwards of a mile from Minstead, is Rufus stone, marking the site of the oak tree from which the arrow fatal to William Rufus is said to have glanced. Near this Glen is Stony Cross, one of the highest parts of the New Forest from which may be seen Romsey Abbey. Before the Conquest, Minstead - assessed at three and one half hides - was held by a certain Godric Malf, whose sons, in 1066 were holding half a hide; the remaining three hides had been taken into the New Forest. A house, in Winchester, worth 12d yearly was attached to the manor. (con't)
