My great grandfather was John Laverack and he was from Yorkshire
my grandfather is the great Jack Laverack from leeds 1901.
The Laveracks are Jews I believe
Only a few Laveracks in the USA. My family lives in Michigan, and all of the Michigan Laveracks are family. My Great Grandfather's name was Samuel Laverack born about 1861 to 1864 in Pollington, Yorkshire, England. I found his name on the 1871 Census of Residents of the Goole Union Workhouse. He was only listed as 8 years old and along with him two other Laveracks, George age 10, and Harriet age 5. I am assuming that they were siblings. I would like to find there birth record so I can find the record of there parents.
My Great Grandfather was Thomas Laverack. born in Pollington, Yorkshire in 1857. I found his family in the 1901 census. They lived at 16 Rose Hill Terrace, Rawcliffe near Goole, Yorkshire. At the same address were his wife Harriet age 49, daughter Eliza age 16, sons Arthur age 14, Walter age 12 ( my grandfather ) Thomas age 11 and Clayton P age 9. My father was George Laverack born in 1924.I can't believe this is coincidence! We might be long lost cousins.
I believe I must have some connection to you, too. My grandfather, who sadly passed away this year, was William Laverack, a Yorkshire man born in 1927 and grew up in Goole. He did a great deal of research on the Laverack family tree and I am hoping to see his records soon. Lots of our immediate family remain in Yorkshire, now in Moorends and Doncaster, however I am now living in Berkshire with my sister, Charlotte.
Lots of Laveracks in Hull and surrounds. I thought laver was linked to flowing water. We need a genetic base!

Laverack is, it seems an old English surname linked to lark. It was a name of bird catchers, metonym for this occupation, also referring to people who rose early and were of cheerful disposition. I'm a name fanatic so had researched this one as I know someone with this name and it is so unusual and found in specific areas of the country. It is not French in origin.
Brittany is not a place near France. It is a part of France. North west. Juts out into Atlantic. Rugged and remote. Bit like Cornwall. Not many Laveracks there.

Im pretty sure the name "LAVERACK" is from "BRITTANY" its a place near france as im doing the family tree im finding out more and more information and am pretty sure i have a lot of "LAVERACK" rellies that i dont know about !!!! but im still searching as my grandfather had i think quiet alot of brothers and sisters and some still alive in sydney area i think !!! If anyone knows of a rolland or sidney or keith or wilfred you could well be related !!!
I live in York, England. There are loads of us here. Sometimes spelt Laverack and sometimes Laverick. Even in the same family tree. My tree has been traced back so far to around 1700 in Yorkshire. It is not Jewish. We do not have that honour.
