Hello David.

I really don't have any information on the Cavey family as I was only looking for Pamela as she was the first wife of my brother-in-law's father. Sounds confusing I'm afraid. Anyway, one of her relatives sent my brother-in-law some info and photos, so I will pass this on to him and maybe he can help you.

Have a nice day,

Hi Peggy.

I was actually looking for a Pamela Cavey who was the first wife of my brother-in-law's father. Confusing at times, but we figured it out.

Thanks anyway,

I am writing from Blenheim, Ontario, Canada and need your help.

My sister's father-in-law is Arthur Boyle and in 1945 he married Pamela Cavey in London I believe. She was born in 1921, the daughter of Cecil Cavey and Art is from the east coast of Canada and was born in 1915. After the war Art was coming home, but Pamela did not want to immigrate to Canada, so they split up. Art is now a lively 96, but for the past 60 years he has wondered what happened to Pamela. I really don't have any more information than that, but it would make an old man very happy to find out what happened to his wife. He has had a wonderful life in Canada, with a new family, but this has really started to bother him the older he gets.

I hope you can help.

I put the name Pamela Cavey Boyle into Google and a message came up that said her neice is looking into family history, but when I clicked on the message your great site came up. Does any of this sound famliar? I inquired a couple of days ago as her ex-husband, Arthur Boyle is 95 and always wondered what happened to her.

Thank you.

I am not a Cavey, but my family is from Keavy/Cavey near Ballygawley, Ulster/N. Ireland.  I wonder if anyone knows why the area is known as Cavey. 

Note from the Editor : Yes, such a village is quoted on the Caveys places. I shall try to provide you with more information later because I have bought a map from the Tyrone County (Irland).

I am not sure if you can help me but i am trying to track down someone. His name is Thomas Cavey, he would be early 40's in age and in the mid 80's he was serving in the military - the USA Air Borne Regiment ..... He and I had become quite close until I moved to Ottawa, Ontario from St John;s 1987. We had been writing for 2 years prior at which time he was living in Raleigh, North Carlina.

I would dearly love to get in touch with Tom or at least hear how he is doing so that I know he is alive, well and happy. I f you know of anyone whom I can contact to try to find him, I would greatly appreciate any help at all.

My email address is and my telephone number is 613-843-9904.....any help is appreciated. Tom would know me as Margie Moores, I married years ago and am now separated ... Once again any help would be welcomed.

Yours truly

I see that my son, Tim has signed your guestbook! Great! Just to let you know that my husband's grandfather (William Cavey) came from Swindon, England.

Hi, My name is Lois Cavey Ingels. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. My father is John Herbert William Cavey of Ottawa Ontario Canada. Thanks for putting the site together because it has been very interesting learning more about my family. I will be sure to drop in again and check it out and maybe give more info.


Tim Cavey
(Manitoba) 8 October 1997

Hi there! My name is Tim Cavey, and I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I found out about your site from your general e-mail we received. I'm just checking it out for first time...(very interesting!)


Damien Rauline
(Quebec ) 3 October 1997

You will find at the end of this message the information that I have concerning the surname CAVE or CAVEY. In the acts of the parish registers of the quoted communes, this name is indistinctly written according to one or the other of the two forms. It is surely possible to go further back to this branch, because it is a question of time which prevented me from pushing my research. And it is now also a question of space since even if I am Norman, I am for a few years in Quebec.

I am a descendant of Jacques BOUILLON and Genevieve MARIE. She was the natural daughter of Marie CAVEY, and that's why she was named after her mother.

I visited your site, and I must say that I was quite surprised to find no text in French. On this subject, I would like to point out that when writing in Canada as a French person, it is preferable to write in both languages. Quebecers (and they are right) have some difficulty understanding that a French speaker can write to another French speaker in another language than French.

Good luck in your research,

[Note of the Editor] : I replied to Damien that he is right, but the reason the site is in English is that when I started building it, I had in mind to reach the Caveys of England and the United States and that he was the first French-speaking Cavey to visit it... First of all, as I wrote on How does Cavey sound in French? In France, some Cavé are certainly Cavey that have lost the final 'y' and have an acute accent on the 'e'. Second, La Vaquerie is a village located in Calvados, while Bieville is located in Manche.

I am Fred T. Cavey father of Bruxy Cavey.

I have not visited the site yet but will do so as soon as the summer holiday period is ended.

I have been Santa Claus at Santa's village here in Bracebridge, Ontario Canada with my wife acting as Mrs. Claus for the summer tourist period. This has kept us busy but the village is now closed until Christmas.

We have had quite a few visitors from Europe as well as Canada and the USA as guests at the Village this summer.

Wow! It was so neet to hear from another "Cavey"!

Let me tell you a bit about myself - My name is Bruxy originally named Bruce and I live in a town called Oakville, which is just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My parents are Fred and Lois Cavey and live in Bracebridge, a town a couple of hours north. I am a 32 year old man and single. I am a Christian and am the pastor of Upper Oaks Community Church in Oakville. I'm also a part-time performer with "4 CRYING OUT LOUD!" a performance art troupe that specializes in drama, dance, and mime.
