Leber Family HistoryRecorded in Britain as Lebare, Lebear, Lebeer, and Leber, this interesting surname is probably In Britain, of German-Huguenot 17th century origins. However spelt, it would seem to derive from the medieval German word "leber", an occupational nickname for a butcher. The word "leber" means liver, and is very much associated with the famous sausage "leberwurst". It is as "Leber" that we find the first recordings both in Germany and England. The period of the Huguenots (1530 - 1750) is usually associated with France, since at the time France was the most Catholic country on the continent, and the one most opposed to the spread of protestantism as signified by the Huguenots.
