Reply to: Where does my last name come from? by Julie Leggette
I looked it up, and it's given as either Irish or Scottish. Here are some links:
http://www.houseofnames.com/xq/asp.fc/qx/leggette-family-crest.htm
http://www.britishsurnames.co.uk/surname/LEGGAT -- misspelled, yes, but easily a variant
http://genealogy.familyeducation.com/surname-origin/leggette

It seems to be British, or at least from that general area. Not every name that ends in an E is French. Good luck in your search! I also suggest posting on some genealogy forums and checking the Social Security records and Ellis Island records.
