The Liffsee name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the township of Livesey which was in the parish of Blackburn in the county of Lancashire. The Liffsee surname is a Habitation name that was originally derived from the place-names of pre-existing towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Early Origins of the Liffsee family


The surname Liffsee was first found in Lancashire at Livesey, a township, in the parish, union, and Lower division of the hundred of Blackburn. "This place gave name to a family who resided here, and were owners of the greater part of the township. James Levesey, in the reign of Edward VI. held the estate as a manor, as did his descendant, James Levesey, in the 9th of James I." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Liffsee family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Liffsee were among those contributors: Robert Livezey settled in Philadelphia in 1856; John Livesey settled in Philadelphia in 1833; Thomas Livesey arrived in Philadelphia in 1863.
