The Givens Surname Project


In the 1630's the Gavine family immigrated from Scotland to Coleraine Ireland and changed the spelling of their name to Given. Soon after the family immigrated,numerous spellings were being used. Giveen, Givens, the spelling of Gibbons was used in 1796 in Chester CO, PA and Botetourt CO, VA. It is believed that our family lines (Daniel & Martha Camden Givens) are believed t be from the North of Ireland in CO Antrim. I have been in the North of Ireland 11 or 12 times researching our family history and have yet to find our connection. There are Given family lines in CO Donegal & CO Londonderry (Derry). There are Givin from Bushmills, Lisconnan & Derrykeighan, Given & Givens from Derrykeighan. There is a Ben Given family line from Cloghmills and Ballymena. Most of these families in America are very active in their research. There is a David Giveen line that immigrated to Brunswick Maine in 1718/19, some dropped one of the e's some changed their spelling to Given. A William Gibbons may be the father of Daniel (Gibbons( Givens from Chester CO, PA. Numerous matches have been established. We need more family members to join us. This is the best money one can spend to find what other family lines (spellings) that we are related too. The Y37 Marker Test for males provides the best results. For a great deal of info about numerous family lines see my web site - enjoy and you may download anything. All the best, D.D. Rusty Givens
