Oliver Genealogy & History

Oliver is a French and English surname, from the Old French name Olivier, which means a seller of olive oil or one who processes it. It came to England with the invasion of 1066. It probably comes from the Latin olivarius, meaning an olive tree, but it might instead be related to the Old Norse Oleifr, for an ancestral relic, or the Germanic alla and waria, which mean all-protection. Oliver family history arrived in the New World when Adam Oliver sailed to Virginia in 1637. Oliver genealogy includes several interesting people, like British Admiral Geoffrey Oliver, Cubs first baseman Gene Oliver, and British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
