Hi Alexander

Many thanks for the information.  This confirms other facts about the family and once again shows the name variations.  I have tried to pronounce the surname but still have trouble with the ending as "g" and "d" sound quite different to me.  Perhaps the accent at the time produced a sound which was a mixture of the two letters. 

Thanks also for the information contained in the Protestation Returns.  I don't have a copy of this publication but I do have copies of the Churchwarden Presentments for the years 1641 and 1642 which confirm Robert's church function.  Interestingly, Robert's mark was a capital R rather than the more normal cross, on the various documents I have sighted over the years.

I am new to Rootschat so I hope I am doing things correctly.  I have been researching various Nottinghamshire families for the past ten years and my particular interest is in the Loverseed(s). 

Unfortunately the name has morphed over the years from Loversedge to Loverseeds with a number of variations along the way.  I believe there are entries in the Notts Hearth Tax book for Loversead Rt and Loversidge (Loverseedge, Loverseige) J and R (there may be others) and I would like to know if the book has details on these families? 

The family name is a very rare one and all living Loverseed family members can trace their ancestry to one person who lived in South Collingham in the 1600's.

Many thanks for sharing your book with other researchers.
