Name Meaning

English and Irish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Neuville in Calvados or Néville in Seine-Maritime, both so called from Old French neu(f) ‘new’ (from Latin novus) + ville ‘settlement’. One family line, originally from Neuville (Calvados), became powerful during the Wars of the Roses through Richard Neville (1428–71), 16th Earl of Warwick, nicknamed "The Kingmaker".

Irish (Munster): assimilation of the Gaelic name Ó Niadh (see Nee ) and sometimes of Ó Cnaimhín (see Nevin ).

History: George Neville came to VA in or c. 1700 and settled on the headwaters of the Occoquan River, acquiring a large estate. His descendants, bearing the surnames Neville and Craig, were of considerable importance in Pittsburgh, PA, and Cincinnati, OH.
