Title: Origin of the name Levack
Posted by: Donald (Livingstone) Clink
Date: 23 March 2009

Hi Gary,

Perhaps sometimes before 1850 the name was changed from Levach to Levack. The 1841 Scottish census records 100 with the Levack spelling many of them in Caithness and in the lowlands and only 25 with the Levach spelling most of them residing in Wick in the County of Caithness. I think the fact that either the census taker or the residents in Wick went with the Levach reinforces your understanding that Levach was  the original spelling.

In the Canadian context I felt it good for future researchers there to know that most Levacks in Canada are of french origin residing having originated in Quebec, but that are some families that settled in neighbouring Ontario that either are of the french-canadian Levack family or alternatively from the Scottish Levack family like those from Caithness in North Eastern Scotland to help prevent confusion.

regards, 

Donald
