Coat of Arms The name Hervey seems to have come from the Norman name Herve', which is still common in parts of Normandy, France. People named Herve' apparently went with William the Conqueror (1026-1087) to England and Anglicized the spelling to Hervey, Haervey, or Harvey. Before conquering England, William was Duke of Normandy.

"Many theories have been put forward to account for the evolution and perfection of heraldry. Its birth coincided with changes in the nature of European society itself, which was becoming more sophisticated, with more and more estates passing from one generation to the next. Throughout Europe, the general trend to migration that had characterized the Dark Ages had come to a halt. Family roots were now firmly bedded in, with the village settlement in place and, at its centre, the first two "estates": the priest, who prayed for all, and the knight or lord who fought for all.
By the 13th century, the notion of gentility was firmly established among the lordly classes, who sought connections with similarly genteel families through marriage. The idea of a stable, ancient and exclusive bloodline was accentuated, and the development of the shield of arms created an ideal symbol to confirm the hereditary nature of that descent."
