surname Liverance in Linlithgow 1600s
« on: Monday 14 September 15 00:26 BST (UK) »
Hi; I have found a line of people called Liverance  going back to Linlithgow. The last direct connection is Andrew Liverance, born circa 1580  married to Katherine Bying. Son James ( 1610) But there is also a George and John Liverance all somehow connected. I was given some information by the local librarian mentioning they were officers of the King  or something like that. The name Liverance itself comes from the Clerk of the Livery of the King's court.   the surname died out early in the 1700s but I think a lot of them went the the US.  interested in any information and/or connections
