This most interesting and curious surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is locational name from the manor of Levishagh in the parish of Buxton in Norfolk. The placename is compose of Olde English pre 7 Century personal name leofric, compose of elements leof, dear, beloved and-ric, power, and Olde English sceaga, small wood, shaw, hence, leofric's small wood. During the Middle Ages, when migration for purpose of job-seeking was becoming more common, people often used their former village name as a means of identification, resulting in wide dispersal of name. Henry de Leveshagh is mentioned in Feet of Fines of Norfolk in 1260, while William de Leveshaye is recorded in 1292 in Edward 1's Book of Pleas for Norfolk. Recordings from Somerset Church Registers include the marriage of Mary Leversha and Abraham Matthews on June 2 1789, at Stogursey, and the marriage of Joan Leversha and William Stockham on April 6 1790, at Kilton in Lilstock. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Halfred de Leveshagh, which was dated 1200, in the Feet of Fines of Norfolk, during the reign of King John, know as lackland, 1199-1216. Surnames become necessary when governments introduce personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout centuries, surnames in every country have continued to develop, often leading to astonishing variants of original spelling.
