An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The origins of the distinguished Manlive 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, Manlive 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.

Manlive Early Origins



The surname Manlive 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: 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.
