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.
