The ancient roots of the Lovesish family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Lovesish comes from when the family lived in the township of Liversedge located in the parish of Bristall just miles from Leeds.

Early Origins of the Lovesish family


The surname Lovesish was first found in West Yorkshire at Liversedge, a township that dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Livresec, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

a manor belonging to Radulf, a vassal of Ilbert de Lacy. The place name probably means "edge or ridge of a man called Leofhere," from the Old English personal name + "ecg." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Lovesish family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Lovesish family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Lovesish arrived in North America very early: William Leveredge, who settled in New England in 1633; Sarah Leveredge settled in Barbados in 1663; Henry Leverage settled in Boston in 1635; William Leveridge settled in Salem in 1633.
