Hervey 1

: Hervey of Ickworth, Hervey of Kidbrooke Kidbroke, Hervey Harvey of Thurley / Thirley
For interest we show the version of this family's pedigree provided by Collins and the Bedfordshire Visitation but do so in italics to highlight the fact that it is not supported by the more recent BP1934 which we presume to have been produced following further research. Collins starts with the following Robert, reportedly a younger son of Hervey or Harvey, Duke of Orleans.
Robert FitzHervey
1. ?? FitzHervey
Collins suggests that this may have been either Robert FitzHervey or Hervey, Bishop of Bangor then Ely, or Count Hervey, Governor of Devizes Castle, or Hervey de Yuon, who married a daughter of William Goieth.
A. Henry FitzHervey a 1190
m Alice dau of Henry FitzIvo
Visitation Bedfordshire starts with this Henry and adds an intervening generation of another Henry, father of Osbert. We follow Collins in showing Osbert as of the next generation.
i. Osbert de Hervey in Helnfestune d 1205-6
a. Adam de Hervey
m Juliana Fitzhugh dau of John Fitzhugh
1 John Hervey of Thirley
m Joan Harman dau of John Harman or Hammon of Thirley
A William Hervey of Thirley d 1377 shown by Visitation, omitted by Collins
m Mary Folliot dau of Richard Folliot
i John Hervey of Thirley or Thurly or Thurleigh
m Margaret Nernuytt dau of Sir John de Nernuytt or Neyrnute of Burnham, son of Thomas by Alice, dau of Thomas Buckland of Buckland
At this stage we start seeing some but not yet consistent names that also appear in BP1934. There was clearly some confusion between different members of the family. This generation is the first shown by the Harleian Society's publication of Visitation Bedfordshire not to be in brackets. The following 2 generations are also shown in brackets but thereafter not.
a John Hervey of Thirley
m Margery Calthorp dau of Sir William Calthorp or Calthrop
1 Thomas Hervey of Thirley or Thurley
m Joan Paston dau of William Paston
A John or Thomas Hervey of Thurley
m Christian Chichley dau of John Chichley, Chamberlain of London

b Thomas Hervey of Ickworth see 2 below

iii+ other issue - Edward, Richard, Isabella nun, Anne, Christian, Alice, Margery, Florence
ii. Cicely FitzHervey mentioned by Visitation
The following is as reported by BP1934, supplemented by information from other of the named sources. Visitation Essex starts with Henry of Thurley, father of Sir Edward, father of John who married Joane Neirwent Neirnuyt. We follow BP1934 which starts with ...
John Hervey of Thurley and Risley
m Marjory Parles dau of Ralph Parles
1. John Hervey of Thurley
m Joan Nernuytt dau of Sir John de Nernuytt of Burnham, son of Thomas by Alice, dau of Thomas Buckland of Buckland
Visitation Suffolk starts with this John & Joan but shows Thomas, who married Christian Chichele, as 2nd son rather than brother of John and shows an additional generation, left out by BP1934, being John d before 08.1458, married Joan/Jane, dau of William Paston, father of John d 23.09.1474, married Agnes Morley, father of Sir George and Elizabeth/Isabel & Thomas of Ickworth m. Jane Drury, Richard & Elizabeth. Visitation Essex shows John & Joan as parents of Thomas who by Christian Chicheley was father of the following John, father of Sir George & Thomas of Ickworth. We follow BP1934.
A. John Hervey of Thurley
m Agnes Morley dau of Nicholas Morley of Glynde or Glind
i. Sir George Hervey, Sheriff of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire d before 08.05.1526 see 1 above
