the last of the lillestons in trinidad, colorado!!!!!
well-I will answer your enquiry even though the time frame & the record is fragmentated and unproven . However it will give you a historical guide. Some taken from sources that are not tied up in ancestry, but in history from way back The name is also believed to have been taken from the flower - " Lilli " ( unproven )
I believe it to be only 95% correct without official documentation -
It appears that the name started in the province of Hungary ( Neunabi )before that _> ( guess work )< _ possibly ??? from one of the original nomad families I will now give you an approximate time frame to follow ( The Spelling of the name changed several times !! )
Date Name county / province Country
about -1400/50 Von Der Lilie Neunubi Hungary
" " - 1500's Lili Zurich Switzerland
" " - 1620's Lili / Lilli Birkweiler Germany
" " - 1650 ( ? ) Lili / Lile Gateborg Sweden
" " - 1700's Lilest/ Lili/ London England
" " - 172O's ( ?? ) Lili / Lilieston Indiana /Alanta USA
As you can see very fragmanted > This is a guide only and one day you may be able to prove the dates as other historical research comes to hand . As this has taken me nearly 9 solid hours an a huge amount of research , Please don't come back to me with questions as I may not be able to give you any more --surported by proven documentation. only what I have given you - I hope it will assist you - Kind regards
There has been a fair amount of money spent investigating this. I am the only man on earth with my name. There are a few of the few remaining Lillestons in Trinidad CO. I have discovered the lilleston name to trace back to Germany. Which if the rest of the Lilleston bloodline has any of the traits I have it would make sence. I am six foot five and two hundred and fifty five pounds. And some of the life styles I wish to live are different then most would expect. Good luck on any searhing you may do. I am the the last of my bloodline intill I produce a child. I would like to know more myself.
