The origins of the distinguished Manleave family in England are uncertain. There was an Old English personal name "lufu," meaning "love"; however there was also a Norman French "louve," denoting a female wolf. It is most likely that as a surname, Manleave developed independently from both of these sources. Menlove Ave., was the name of an 1986 album by English rock musician John Lennon as he lived at 251 Menlove Avenue in Liverpool, England as a child.

Early Origins of the Manleave family


The surname Manleave was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held lands.

Manleave Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Manleave family name include Manlove, Menlove, Manlovell, Manleave and others.

Migration of the Manleave family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Manleave surname or a spelling variation of the name include: a Manlove family, who arrived in Maryland in 1665; among the family members were John, Mark, Christopher, Ann and William Manlove. Other settlers include Ebenezer Manlove, on record in Delaware in 1764.
