Reeves Genealogy & History

Reeves is an English surname with two major origins. First, it can be a patronymic form of Reeve, from the Middle English reeve and Old English gerefa or refa, which mean reeve, also known as a steward or bailiff. It may also be topographical for someone living near a forest, from the Middle English after eaves, meaning at the edge. Reeves family history begins with Richard del Reves, noted in the Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire in 1332. Reeves genealogy lays claim to many well-known people, like Admiral Joseph Reeves, Star Trek and general science fiction writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, and former New Zealand Archbishop and Governor-General Paul Reeves.
