I have been researching my family tree for the last few years The Oldreive's mostly from Plymouth Devon but also scattered over the rest of the main land as well as the Channel Isle of Jersey.
I have established a blood line from present to approx 1750ish
The last confirmed relative is William Oldreive the father of Charles Oldreive born in Plymouth in 1813. But that is were I keep coming up dry.
I have noticed that the spelling of the last name has had some changes over the years .

1837 OLDREIVE
1757 OLDREEVE
1708 OLDIVE
1652 OLDRIEVE
1621 OLDIVE



I am looking for any information or direction to help me make some links in the 1700'S

Thank You
Graham Oldreive

You have probably already used these web sites but if not they might help try Genuki look for area you are researching that will tell you if the records are on Familysearch.org. IGI and what dates they have covered
Good Luck

From what I can tell and what my Father had told me before his death.
The Channel Isle of Jersey "Reeve" was the Sheriff for the Shire (keeper of the house)
My Dad told me once when I was very young so its a little hazy now that there was an old man in his 80's that took care of a Royal Land on the Island of Jersey so the village people would call him the Old Reeve. The old Sheriff or Old keeper of the Land and over the years it has changed Oldreeve, Oldive ,Oldrieve, Oldrive, Oldreive.
