Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Leverton in Lincolnshire, or North and South Leverton in Nottinghamshire. The Lincolnshire placename derives from Old English lǣfer ‘rush, reed, iris’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. The Nottinghamshire place probably takes its name from a lost river name Legre (of uncertain origin) + Old English tūn. Perhaps also from Liverton in North Yorkshire.
