Liggett spelling variations same source

It is my understanding that the name, however spelt--Ligate, Legat, Legett, Ligit, Ligget, Liggett, etc. had the same source, but in the days before everyone could write, the name was spelt as the listener heard it whether it was the minister, the rent collector, the customs official, or the census taker. I am interested in Liggetts of any spelling from County Tyrone, Ireland before 1850.
