Purtroppo, riguardo a questo cognome, abbiamo trovato informazioni storiche solo in lingua inglese. Over the centuries the name Di Sivo may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Di Sivo came originally from SAVO, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. This name SAVO was primarily introduced into England by the Normans in the wake of the Invasion of 1066. It came in the form of Savaric. The name is also spelt SAVORY, SAVOURY, SAVARY, SEVERY, SAVARIC, SAVARIT and SAFFROY, to name but a few. Savaric de Maulcon, who was documented in Southampton in the year 1224, appears to be the first of the name on record. Richard Saveri was recorded in County Cambridge in the year 1273, and Savar de Claville appears in the same year in County Wiltshire. John Sauvery was documented during the reign of Edward I (1272-1307). William Savary was recorded in Wiltshire in 1605, and Elizabeth, daughter of John and Abigail Saveory (lodging at Mr. Pitman’s house) was baptised at St. Thomas the Apostle, London in 1708. Elizabeth, daughter of James Saffey, was baptised at Canterbury Cathedral, Kent in the year 1805. The rise of last names, according to the accepted theory, was due to the Norman Conquest of 1066 when Old English personal-names were rapidly superseded by the new christian names introduced by the Normans. Of these, only a few were really popular and in the 12th century this scarcity of christian names led to the increasing use of last names to distinguish the numerous individuals of the same name. Some Normans had hereditary last names before they came to England, but there is evidence that last names would have developed in England even had there been no Norman Conquest. The development of the feudal system made it essential that the king should know exactly what service each person owed. Payments to and by the exchequer required that debtors and creditors should be particularized, and it became official that each individual acquired exact identification. One of the earliest Australian novels ‘Quintus Servington’ (1831) was written by an English-born convict, Henry Savery (1791-1842). He had been convicted of forgery and when his death sentence was commuted he was transported to Australia in 1825. Savery was born in Butcombe, Somerset, the son of a banker, and had been a businessman and sugar refiner. In Australia he fell into debt and was again imprisoned, during which time he wrote his sketches of colonial life….
