The ancestors of the name Livezey date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in the township of Livesey which was in the parish of Blackburn in the county of Lancashire. The Livezey 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 Livezey family


The surname Livezey 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 Livezey family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Livezeys to arrive on North American shores:
