The origins of the distinguished Menlove 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, Menlove 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.

Menlove Early Origins



The surname Menlove 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.

Menlove Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Menlove are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Menlove include: Manlove, Menlove, Manlovell, Manleave and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Menlove or a variant listed above:
