Livetot History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Livetot family

The surname Livetot was first found in Nottingham at Worksop, a market-town and parish, and the head of a union, in the Hatfield division of the wapentake of Bassetlaw. "This place, which in Domesday Book is written Witchesope, and in other records of that period Wyrksoppe and Wirkensop, appears to have belonged, prior to the Conquest, to Elsi, a Saxon nobleman. It was afterwards granted by the Conqueror to Roger de Busli, and subsequently became the property of William de Lovetot, who, in the reign of Henry I., founded here a priory for Canons regular of the order of St. Augustine, the prior of which was, in the time of Henry III., summoned to parliament. After a considerable period, it passed, by the marriage of the heiress of the Lovetots, to the family of Furnival." [1]
