If you go to
enter just "Liberato" in the surname field and check th ebox at the bottom labeled "Exact Spelling" you'll see there were Liberatos all over the world. there are a lot of them inthe Phillipines, for instance. there are some in Italy before 1850. There are lots in Latin Ameraca, which hints that there were many in Spain before then.
This isn't definite proof of the surname origin, just some samples.
