Spelling variants included: Lasington, Lesington, Lesingham, Lasingham, Lusingham, Lusington, Lessington, Lassington, Lexington, Lecksington, Lacksington, Laxington and many more.

Migration of the Lusington family
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 Lusingtons to arrive on North American shores: Thomas and Fanny Lessington and their son and daughter, who arrived in New York on May 8, 1858 aboard the " Isaac Webb" from Liverpool, England..
