Clan Harvey and Seinsheim Line

Here is the line from the rulers of Bohemia to members of Clan Harvey, thus the Seinsheim bloodline did not die out. The name ‘Le Bruce’ is interesting. Rosemary wanted my brother and I to play the bagpipes because of the scant history she owned from her father, Royal Rosamond. We are kin to Hepburn. Now we know why Rev. John Wilson was born at Windsor. Need I say I have every right to protect my family history from usurpers. Buck would agree.

Names Associated with Clan Harvey:  HERVEY/HERVIE/HARVEY/HARVIE.


Origins of the name:

This ancient surname, well recorded in Scotland, has two possible sources, the first being from the Breton personal name “Aeruiu” or “Haerviu”, composed of the elements “haer”, meaning battle, and “vy”, – worthy. The 1086 Domesday has various references to followers of William the Conqueror, including Herueu de Berruarius of Suffolk, and later Heuei de Castre of Lincoln, in 1157. These were not surnames, although in fact the first surname recording was only just behind. The second source is Irish. It is said that a Galway clan called originally the O’hAirmheadhaigh, did ‘anglicise’ their name to Harvey or Harvie.

The Gaelic translates as ‘the descendant of the son of Airmed’. The surname is generally recorded as Harvey, Harvie, Hervie and Hervey, and early recordings include William Hervy of Essex in 1232, Warin Harvi in the Pipe Rolls of Cambridge for the year 1273, and John Hervy, burgess of Aberdeen in 1398. The roll of famous namebearers includes William Harvey (1578 – 1657), who discovered the circulation of the blood in 1616, whilst Edmond Harvey, a Parliamentarian Colonel, was one of the fifty three regicides who signed the death warrant of Charles 1st in January 1649. Beauchamp Bagenal Harvey was one of the 1798 leaders of the Irish rebellion, whilst curiously Robert Hervie of Scotland was a member of the Huntly Volunteer force, raised to combat a possible French-Irish invasion. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Hervi, which was dated 1190, in the ‘Calendar of Abbot Samson of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk’, during the reign of King Richard 1, known as “The Lionheart”, 1189 – 1199.


There are those who could argue that the Keith Clan name more correctly would be Harvey.In the time of David I, King of Scotland (about 1160), a Scottish Knight named Hervey is said to have obtained a grant of the north-west portion of the lands of Keith, in East Lothian (near Aberdeen). From the owner, it was called Keith-Hervey. It was this Hervey who held the office of King’s Marischal under Malcom IV and William the Lion. The title Marischal became hereditary, and was passed to his grandson Philip upon Hervey’s death in 1196. As was the custom at the time, the family became known by the name Keith, after the lands they possessed. The Keiths were a very powerful Celtic family in the far north of Scotland and their chiefs continued to hold the important office of Marischal of Scotland for six hundred years. Numerous Earl Marischals used the name Hervey or Harvey throughout their history. Famous episodes of their chronicles are a bloody and treacherous battle with their Norse neighbors, the Gunns, in 1464 and the rescue in Cromwell’s time of the Scottish Regalia which the sixth Earl Marischal hid safely at Dunottar Castle.
