Where did the English Liptrot family come from? What is the English Liptrot family crest and coat of arms? When did the Liptrot family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Liptrot family history?

The ancient origin of this name has baffled and confounded historians for many years. Many ascribe to it a German origin, much later than the Saxon invasion. Demographically this does not seem feasible. They do not look like they are Liebetruts, as Lower suggests. The only reasonable offering we can make is that the surname came down into Lancashire from the English/Scottish border. In the borders region, "trod," or "trot" was the term used for a pursuit posse. The law included both a hot trod (24 hours), and a cold trod (48 hours). It would seem quite feasible that an obscure Border Clan or family named Lip or Lipp, an old Aberdeenshire surname going back 1200 in Perthshire, to have adopted the name Liptrod.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat. It is possible that the surname came south to Lancashire from the English/ Scottish borders through Cumberland, Northumberland, and Dumfries down to Lancashire in about 1570 to 1603. The first records of the surname Liptrod were around the Bolton, Haigh, Lawton, and Chorley areas showing sudden proliferation of the name after about the year 1600.
