LOVERIDGE Family History

Recorded in many forms including Leverage, Leverich, Levick, Lefridge, Leftridge, Lefwich, Liverock, Loveredge and even Leftbridge, this is an ancient English surname. Although it may seem to be locational from some place meaning the "lower ridge" or similar, it is in fact an Olde English pre 7th century personal name! It derives from the given name "Leofric", composed of the elements "leof", meaning dear or beloved, with "ric", power. This name was very popular in England in pre Norman times. Although most Anglo-Saxon names became "politically incorrect" after the Invasion, this one retained its popularity well into the growth of the surname period in the 13th century.
