The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred
years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations
in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Loverock has been spelled many different ways, including Laverack, Laverick, Lavericke, Lavrick, Loverock, Laverock, Laverok, Laverik, Lauericke and many more.
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Loverocks to arrive in North America: John Laverick, who sailed to Boston in 1634; L. Laverick, who came to Frederick County, Maryland in 1795; Nathan Laverick, who arrived in New York in 1836.
