Nicola I wonder if you ever found out about the Leverett who left UK to 'work in films' I seem to recall in the past seeing the name Leverett (possibly Albert or Alfred I cannot be sure)in the film credits at the end of an Alfred Hitchcock film. Im sorry but I cannot recall which one. I never followed it up myself. This would certainly make sense as Hitchcock himself went over to the States from the UK having previously worked here. There is as far as I am aware no connection with my family, but I would still be interested to know more if you find anything.
