Origins

Origins Available: England Scotland surname Levett was first found in Suffolk, where they hold family seat as Lords of Manor. William Levett was Lord of Manor of the South Yorkshire village of Hooton Levitt. After the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William, Duke of Normandy, having prevailed over King Harold, granted most of Britain to his many victorious Barons. It was not uncommon to find Baron, or Bishop, with 60 or more Lordships scattered throughout the country. These he gives to his sons, nephews and other junior lines of his family and they become known as under-tenants. They adopt the Norman system of surnames which identifies the under-tenant with his holdings so as to distinguish him from the senior stem of the family. After many rebellious wars between his Barons, Duke William, commissioned a census of all England to determine in 1086, settling once and for all, who hold which land. He called the census Domesday Book, indicating that those holders register would hold land until the end of time. Hence, conjecturally, surname descend from tenant of lands of Leuiet, held by the Norman noble who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.

English Levetts

The Levett family settled in Derbyshire was extinct in early sixteenth century. Family of named residents in Sussex at Warbleton and Salehurst also held manor of Firle until it passed from family control in 1440 due to debts of Thomas Levett, whose bankruptcy also necessitated the loss of Catsfield, East Sussex. Sussex deeds indicate instances of 'Levetts' attached to place names, indicating possession by individuals and families of that name. In 1620, John Levett, of Sedlescombe, Sussex, was forced by financial hardship to sell his half-interest in Bodiam Castle, inheriting family land and property across Sussex and Kent, including at Ewhurst, Salehurst, Battle, Sussex and Hawkhurst, Kent, to Sir Thomas Dyke, for £1000; this represented the end of these Levetts as prominent landowners. Families of the name Levett would subsequently settle in Gloucestershire, Yorkshire, Worcestershire, Suffolk, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Kent, Bedfordshire and Staffordshire. By mid twentieth century, only two prominent Levett families remain; that of Milford Hall, Staffordshire and that formerly of Wychnor Hall, Staffordshire. Milford Hall passed in female line to the Haszard family, and Wychnor Park was sold by Levetts to Lt-Col W. E. Harrison in 1913, This later became a country club. The Levett-Scrivener family retain the ruin of Sibton Abbey, which they have made available to historical societies and researchers; Levett-Prinseps were unable to maintain Croxall Hall; it was sold in 1920 and the estate was broken up. By 1871, although the family tradition of common ancestors of Milford Hall and Wychnor Park Levett families was mentioned in the latter pedigree, earliest list ancestors of each family were, respectively, William Levett of Savernake, Wiltshire, page to King Charles I at the time of his death in 1649, and Theophilus Levett, who die 1746. Even the 1847 edition, produced at a time when Burke's publications were inclusive of vague, unproven 'family traditions', makes no mention of any earlier ancestors or Norman origin in either family's pedigree. Individuals of name of Levett appear in all social strata: John Levett, guard on London to Brighton coach, was convicted of petty theft and transported to Australia in the nineteenth century; English records reveal Levetts embroiled in bastardy cases or relegate to poorhouses. Francis Levett was factor living in Livorno, Italy, travelling back and forth to Constantinople for Levant Company. He subsequently failed at British East Florida as planter; his son Francis Jr. Came to America, where he became the first to grow Sea Island cotton. The notable individual of name was an unschooled Yorkshireman who, having worked as a Parisian waiter, then trained as an apothecary. Robert Levet returns to England, where he treats denizens of London's seedier neighbourhoods. Having married an apparent grifter and prostitute, Levet was taken in by poet Samuel Johnson. While Samuel Johnson adopted one Levet as boarder, he was apologizing to another better-place Levett, who held the mortgage on Johnson's mother's home in Lichfield.
