LOVE Family History

This is an English surname. Recorded as Love, Luff, and Louve, it has at least two possible origins. The first is as a derivative of the Olde English pre 7th century personal name "Lufa" which is recorded in the Feudal Documents of the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, in the year 1095, whil;st slightly later Galfridus filius Love appears in the Pipe Rolls of the adjoining county of Norfolk in the year 1208. The second possible origin was as a nickname from the Norman French word "louve" meaning a female wolf. This creature was renowned for her bravery and ferocity in fighting and therefore was a complimentary nickname for a soldier...

Deon Love

Hi my name is Deon Love. I'm interested in my family's history. My grandfather Chester Love was from Missouri. He claimed we originated from Ireland. Possibly Northern Ireland around Derry and Tyrone. My grandmother's last name was Blair also from Missouri. Both sides of my family comes back to Derry and Tyrone. From what I can find. Anybody with any information would be greatly appreciated.
