Origin of Culver, Meaning of Culver

Origin: Culver was originally Colver and from England. It is a type of pigeon so the original Colvers were probably keepers of pigeons. Several sources say that all Culvers are descendents of Edward Colver, a Puritan who came to Boston in 1635 on the same boat as Winthrop, later governor of Rhode Island. He married Ann Ellis who was also born in England. Edward helped found Mystic, Conn. and most of the family stayed in that area for several years, eventually migrating throughout the country, but at first to New Jersey, Vermont, New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Some researchers feel that some Culvers are descended from Edward's brothers who emigrated to Ireland and then their descendents came to the U.S. Several genealogy books have been written about the Culver family.
