This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.
The Lisher surname is thought to have derived from the Slavic word " litsch" which meant wild, as such it may have been a nickname for a wild and unruly person. Some believe the surname Lisher was first found in Austria. Some early settlers in America in the 18th Century one was John Lisher that landed in Penn. in 1761. They have arrived from Canada, England, Ireland, Germany and Scotland. Finding origin may be difficult. The name has been changed and misspelled a lot over the years. Even growing up such a simple name, and no one could spell it right. I will keep looking and with luck and a little help from my friends maybe I will come up with something.
The goal of this project is to help with any Lisher profile.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- so many recent Lisher profiles have been orphaned. I will try to do as much as I can to improve them. If you have a Lisher family member please help. Most of the orphaned Lishers were from Sussex England. Thank you!
