Surname meaning and origin:
literal translation "Lovegood" or "Body and Goods". The
Leibenguth family is of Swiss origin, the earliest records available dating back to
1293. Records dated 1590 disclosed that our Swiss ancestors formerly resided in
Aarwangen, near Langenthal, in the Canton of Bern, Switzerland. They were
German-speaking Lutherans. In the 17th Century, some of them migrated to German
Alsace, where for seventy years they resided, among other places, in the small hamlet of
Schalkendorf, twenty-five miles northwest of the City of Strassburg. In 1680, a
great part of Alsace was seized by the French, and in 1689, a vast territory known as the
Palatinate was desolated. In the early 1700s, they left their Fatherland to find
safe haven in the Colony of William Penn.
