The Lisk surname is thought to have derived from the name of the lands of Leask, in the parish of Slaines, Aberdeenshire.

Lisk Early Origins



The surname Lisk was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat. Their first records were at Pitlurg in the parish of Slains about the year 1380 but it is thought they held a family seat at that location from very early times.
