Today’s generation of the Scriven family bears a name that was brought to England by the wave of migration that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066.  Scriven is a name for a writer to the Courts.  This name comes from the Old French word "escrivien", (a derivative of the latin word "scribanus" to write) which was the title of a person employed to keep official records of trials.  The ancient chronicles of England & early records of the name Scriven show it to be an old Norman name.  In depth research by skilled analysts into ancient manuscripts such as the Domesday Book (compiled in 1086 by William the Conqueror) The Ragman Rolls, The Wace Poems, The Honour Roll of the “Battel Abbey”, The Curia Regis Pipe Rolls, the Falaise Rolls, tax records and Baptisimals etc. shows that the Scriven name was first found in Yorkshire where they were “seated” from very early times & were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy their liege, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
