Three of his sons, William, John & Henry Laverty, it is reported, migrated west, working as laborers for the Union Pacific RR; John reportedly died enroute , while William & Henry survived in Eureka CA.
Laverty is an exclusively Ulster name, but is found mainly in Co Antrim. Most of this name will be originally MacLaverty's, a sept of Clan Donald, hereditary 'speakers, or heralds, of the Lords of the Isles'. The Clan Donald claim that the name was originally Fear Labhairt an Righ, 'the kings speaker' but Black states that the name was actually Fhlaithbhertaich and was thus etymologically similar to the Irish O'Flaverty or O'Lafferty. The MacLavertys claim to be originally a Kintyre branch of the MacDonalds. They were later based on Islay, at the court of the Lords of the Isles. The name became common to on Arran. In the mid-19thC the Antrim Lavertys were found almost exclusively in the barony of Upper Dunluce.
