LOVETT Family History

This surname, of English or Scottish origin, and found chiefly in Staffordshire, can be either a nickname from the Anglo-Norman French "lo(u)vet", meaning "wolfcub" or "young wolf", or it can be a locational name from Lovat near Beauly, Inverness, deriving from the Gaelic "lobh", meaning "rot", plus "ait", place. Locational surnames were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace. The surname dates back to the early 12th Century (see below), and further recordings include one Thomas Lovet (1273) in the Subsidy Rolls of Northamptonshire, and Willelmus Louott (1379) in the Poll Tax Records of Yorkshire...
