Veazey Family History

Veazey Surname Meaning

English (Rutland): nickname from Anglo-Norman French enveisé ‘playful’ (Old French envoisié) Latinized as invesiatus (compare medieval Latin invasus ‘possessed by a demon’) and paralleled by lascivus ‘wanton’. The first syllable was lost early resulting in numerous dialectal and orthographic variants; only Lenfestey preserves the fuller form with an intrusive medial -t-. There has also been some confusion with Vessey .
