The origins of the Leverich name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Leverich was originally derived from a family having lived in the township of Liversedge located in the parish of Bristall just miles from Leeds.

Leverich Early Origins



The surname Leverich was first found in West Yorkshire at Liversedge, a township that dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Livresec, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

a manor belonging to Radulf, a vassal of Ilbert de Lacy. The place name probably means "edge or ridge of a man called Leofhere," from the Old English personal name + "ecg." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: William Leveredge, who settled in New England in 1633; Sarah Leveredge settled in Barbados in 1663; Henry Leverage settled in Boston in 1635; William Leveridge settled in Salem in 1633.
