PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION 

E following pages are offered to the public in the belief that they 
1 be found useful to those interested in the study of names or 
Igaged in compiling family histories. 

Although the vast catalogue of British surnames may not have 

I exhausted, yet by many years' labour more than eight thousand 
firesentative modern names, extracted from directories, newspapers, 
ling lists, etc., have been traced to their source, and when it is 
lembered that this includes the numerous variations and ramifica- 

5 of these patronymics, the extensive scope of this work will then 

appreciated. 

The utility of the lists of ancient names to the student of local 
mology must at once be apparent, whilst to the genealogist (whether 
Itish, Colonia), or American) the revelations as to the transformation 
hnuly names will be of the utmost service. 

H. B.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION 

Another edition being demanded, an effort has been made to present 
I it in a cheap and popular form. 

' The book has been revised, enlarged, and improved; and, besides 
additional information in the introductory part, the number of family 
ttmes has been brought up to over ten thousand. 

Many errors have been rectified, but the writer is conscious of 
defects still existing, which time, experience, and further research may 
Up to overcome. 

He takes this opportunity of thanking his numerous correspond- 
ents, in all parts of the world, for their kind and encouraging 
€imuDunications.

INTRODUCTION 



UR.ING a lengthened research in studying the place-names of 
Ibe Danelagh, the writer accumulated a great number of 
Dames from ancient sources necessary for unravelling the 
I skein of local etymology. 

occurred to him that these might be utilised in the treatment of 
, surnames, and his first idea was to publish the lists with an 
ictory chapter on the origin of surnames, for the use of students 
branch of archeology, who were in need of such things, for easy 
«. 

th this view the author wrote an article in the Antiquary (Sep- 
' i8qi), in order to draw attention to the subject, as Lower's 
ih Surnames' is both out of date and altogether unreliable. 
cr this he met with, for the first time, the last- mentioned author's 
tiymira firitannica,' a more ambitious work, and a great improve- 
ipon the previous attempt, but still deficient in precise information 
restigation. 

e dictionary form, however, seemed to be the best for ready 
ice, and he thought a few examples, to show the way in which 
I wrought out the names, would be of service to those who are 
led in this important study. Hence it came about that this work 
Ldually grown until it assumes its present proportions, 
e chief object has been, as far as possible, to avoid anything like 
rork or fancy interpretation, and to seek for a definition among such 
[ as seemed likely to supply it ; so that, when a word could not be 
d to any reasonable origin, it was put on the shelf until time, 
mce, and discovery should verify ii. 

tides the works of reference which he consulted, he found it 
iiy to prepare, for his own use, the lists of names already men- 
I and these have been of so much service that he trusts they 
B found equally available for all Chose who wish to enter upon 
duous but fascinating task. 

addition to these he has examined directories and maps of Great 
I, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Flanders, Germany, Nor- 

my a tiame that seemed to defy all explanation was found to 
It of some obscure village, so disguised as to be almost past 



recognition. Who, for instance, would expect to see Sevenoal 
Snooks, St Olave's Street in Tooley Street, St Etheldreda in ~ 
D'Eagles in Diggles, Wilburgham in Wilbraham, Tuberville in Tro 
field, Longueville in Longfellow, Longchamps in Longshanks, Blond 
in filomfield, Adburgham in Abraham and Abram, Renshai 
Wrcncher and Wrinch, Wymondham in Wyndham ? 
Indeed, as Mr Lower truly says : 

ive undeiEone tend to liaffle ali 

The following will serve as illustrations of the corruption 
names are hable. The family name of Weewail occurs frequent 
the parish register of Peckleton, Leicestershire, and between 
1750 there ire many variations of the spelling, scarcely two ei 
being alike. It appears as Whewaugh, Whewvaugh, Whee'vaw, Wi 
Weewaa, Wheewhal, Whewwhaw, Whealwhal, Weewal, WheelwalL 
the North of England it took the form of Whewell. 

The name of the great English dramatist is generally spelt Sh 
peare, but there are many ways of spelling the name accordii 
English orthography. Here are a few of them as appearing ii 
documents : Shakspere, Shaxpere, Shakspire, Shaxspere, Schal 
Shakespere, Shakspeare, Schakespeyr, Shaxes peare. Shags pere, 
puT, Shaxsper, Shaksper, Shackspeare, Saxpere, Shakespire, Shakes 
Shackespeare, Shakaspear, Shaxper, Shaltspear, Shaxpeare, Shaks; 
Shaxbure, Shackspeyr, Shalcespeat, Schakesper, etc. 

Goodwin is found in ancient documents as Godewyn, Godin, Go 
Godwyn, Goodwen, Goodwin, Goodwyn, Goodwyne. 

Bugge as Buci, de Bougy, de Bucy, Bugi, Boci, Bogge, Busse, 
Douche, Boughe, Buggey, Bussey, Bogg, Boag, Boake, Bogue, 
Beucey, Boogie, Bugey, Buggy, Buggie, Bukie, Bouky, Boog, 

Yule appears as Yovele, Vouhill, Youille, Youle, Yowell, ^'ewell, V 
Yuell, Yewle, Yeule, Jouel, Jowcl. Jewell, Jule, Yull, Juler, etc. 

Applethwaite as Ablewhite, Ablett, Ebblethwaile, Hebbletb 
Hepplewhite, etc. 

Job as Jopp, Jupp, Jubb, Juby, Jubey, Chubb, Chope, Jupp, Jt 

Mr W. P. Phillimore, M.A., B.C.L., in 'Notes on Finni 
Phillimore, and their Allied Surnames,' gives fifty-nine different 
of spelling the former, and thirty-four of the latter surname.

UUCU speculation has arisen as to the date when surnames were first 
used in ihis country. It is now pretty well admitted that they began to 
be adopted about a.d. looo. 

According to Lower, the practice commenced in Normandy, and 
■dually extended itself to this country; but the use of surnames was 
DOCuionally hereditary among the i\iiglo-Sajtons before the Conquest, 
*"id the' general adoption of family desigtiatiotls. 

bi the time of King Edward the Confessor there was among the Saxon 
nsnts in Suflblk one Leuric Hobbesune. Suert Magno or Manni, 
Godric Poinc, Tedricus Poinlel, Siuuard Rufus, Stigand Spror also occur. 
Al ibe time of the Domesday Survey they were becoming more 
imerous, for both the tenants in chief and the under-tenants possessed 
Ibem. Thus we find Alwin Dodesune, Godric Cratel, William Goizen- 
bodcd. William Hosed, Hugo La'sne, Walter Achet, Osmund Angevin, 
Roger Amndel, Bernard Barb, Walter Bee, Hugo Bolebec, William 
Bonvulel, Aluin Coc (bedellus), William Denomore, Roger DeramJs, etc. 
Vuious writers have treated the subject of British surnames in different 
■jv, from Camden and Lower downwards. Some have produced very 
DDSing articles by grouping the most extraordinary names they could 
find together, as the names of birds, beasts, flowers, objects in common 
Bse, tmdes, etc. 

A fov have made some attempts to give the derivations of well-known 
UDCS according to their own classification, ignoring altogether the 
poMtbiIit)r of many being traced to extremely ancient sources. 

Names which betoken association with territorial possession and 
QCC Wp a t ions, and Christian names also, are not difhcult lo distinguish ;

I •cttlers. except such as are probably of Celtic or British origin. 
s a well-known fact that many family names are peculiar to certain 
where they have remained for many generations, as can be 
1 from the old church registers. The spread of railways and the 
1 Ciici!itip.s for locomotion in every way are fast altering the old 
Rate of tilings, however, especially where there is a sudden development

British Family Names 



^ 



many of the old family names still remain — some, indeed, are se 
found in any other part of England. 

In one district in England a marked peculiarity in the names O 
people exists. This is known as the Danish Settlement (Danel 
already referred lo. 

Here, as might be expected, is a strong Norse element, and 
distinction is more clearly marked the farther east one goes, as 
names have not undergone ihe modification so often found in the ' 
since in many cases the original Scandinavian form prevails. 

The family nomenclature of this part of the country undotib 
requires particular treatment. It is not surprising, therefore, to dis< 
many personal names, either of pure Norse families or of placi 
qualities. 

In East Anglia a large proportion of the family names are n 
syllabic. This singularity is so striking that it forces itself upon the 
casual observer. Perhaps it is owing lo the large infusion of nam* 
Dutch and Flemish origin. 

Moreover, strangely enough, the local pronunciation of name 
persons and places has long outlived the many orthographical cba 
which took place in our written language while men spell words phon 
ally, or as fancy dictated. Accordingly, we find in old records, 
Anglo-Saxon charters and Domesday Book to later times, strange \ 
dons, in some cases making the derivation from the original sour< 
no means easy. 

All this is very interesting to the student of British surnames, 
looks at Ihe subject, not on the humorous side only, but in its histo 
etymological, ethnological, and topographical aspect. 

The language — dialect if preferred^of the North of England is tO 
day full of words and expressions which can only be explained b 
help of the Icelandic, as the representative of the old Northern langi 
spoken by the Scandinavian settlers in England. The colonizatit 
Iceland was included in that stream of emigration which began to 
Norway a.d. S52, and spread along the coasts of Normandy, Eng 
Ireland, and Scotland up to the end of the eleventh century. For a 
four hundred years afterwards the old Norse tongue was locked up in 
remarkable Northern island, and preserved almost incorrupt, whiU 
mother-country became affected, and its original langus^e conside 
modified, by contact with other European nations. 

In a sort of Domesday Book, compiled by the authorities in Id 
(Islands Landnamd-b6k), there was, among other matters recofded 
deposited in the cathedral of Reykyavik, a roll of the names 01 
original settlers (of which perhaps a third are women) and the 1 
they occupied, making about five thousand proper names. 

This remarkable document, which has been preserved, throws ( 
light upon the derivation of many personal and local names in ScoU 
and Northern England hitherto considered to be obscure, and it ij 
necessary to the antiquary as the so-called 'Roll of Baltell Abl 
or the Domesday Book of the Conqueror. It is, in fact, the 
Btorehouse for genealogical knowledge. 



British Surnames 



The study of the Icelandic, in its relation to old and provincial 
f^Uh and its comparison with Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Frisian, 
' ih, and German, has opened out a wonderful field of never- 
; intertst, and made us acquainted with things we never before 
1 connection with this subject. 
In the course of his researches the writer has picked up a few 
S »nd ends of informatiot] which may perhaps he useful to others. 
is possible to derive some instruction and to extract no little 
lemcnt from the carrying out of a train of speculation on the 
1 of names, so, if these details appear somewhat dry, it is to be 
d they will be set down as a humble effort to deal as carefully 
I a special and difficult subject as the nature of the materials 
' 1 reach and limited qualifications for the task will permit of, 
Wf appear to some, possibly, that the importance of the old 
S has been over-estimated, and not enough credit given to the 
>Suon. 

ertups it is so; but. besides the names of places, it must be 
tted thai very many modern English words show early Northern 
nee, and even in Anglo-Saxon times the language was so blended 
Scandinavian words that there were often double expressions 
llie same thing. 

It seems clear that the Frisian dialect of the Low German gives 
II idea of the original so-called Anglo-Saxon, for it is the modem 
sitative of the language of old Dutch Friesland, whence so 
trf those who settled in England {after the departure of the 
is) came. 

Is appears to be borne out by the fact that the early English 

uries (notably St. Boniface) made their way to that country 

K it was the home of their fathers, and there was no more 

iQf with the language than in the case of a citizen of the 

ting Britain, 

be seen that even at this early period names were derived 

^ ;, occupations, personal and mental qualities and peculi- 

inamea, social relations, etc. Further, in common with 

races, the Norse used diminutives, or pel names, which 

ick to the individuals so designated and became family

It will be useful to apply the test of the old world sources to the fi 
I names of this country, coin|>aring them in the first instance with di 
of the Northern nations, the Scandinavians {Danes so called), I 
Frisians (i.e. Saxons), the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) in Dome* 
Book, and, in the second place, with existing names in Noftlj 
Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Normandy, Holland, and Flanders. | 
In addition to these quarries, whicli the writer will endeavooi 
work, it may be mentioned that there are many names which cli 
bear the stamp of foreign origin, and have not yet been so ent 
metamorphosed but that their Continenta! source may be discovj

Englishmen and take an English surname, of a town (as Sutton, Cha 
etc.), or colour (as white, black), or art (as smith, carpenter, t 
or office (as cook or butler), and he and his issue should use \ 
. same under a specified penalty. Thus, O'Gowan became Smith I 
Maclntyre Carpenter, etc. Most surnames will be found to o( 
under one or other of the following heads; 

I. Nicknames. 5. Trade names. 

3. Clan or tribal names. 6. Christian names.

' My fool is on my native heath and my name li MacGregoi.' — Scott. 
According to the Rev. Dr. Todd : 

' Clan signifies cbildien ui desccndanls. The tribe bulng descended from a 
ancestor, <he chieftain, as the repiescnialivE d1 thai ancesloi, was regardei 
common father of the clan, and they as his children.' 

The Gaelic Ma>r, the Irish O, the British Ap, the Norse a 
Frisian ingar and en, the Anglo-Saxon ing, the Norman Jltt,* 
indications of a family name. 

' By Mac and O you'll always know 
True Irishmen, they say ; 
But if they lack both " O " and " Mac," 
No Irishmen are they.' 

The ancient tribe of Waring or Wearing, the Voeringi or Vei 
originally from what is still called the Vceringifjord in Norway, f 
the celebrated Varangian Guard of the Byzantine Emperors, wh' 
afterwajds recruited largely from the North, and especially from I 

The following list, compiled from ' Words and Places,' by f 
Isaac Taylor, and from ' Surnames as a Science,' by Mr R. F 
will be found to contain ancient Scandinavian and Frisian family r 
with the Old EngUsh or Anglo-Saxon suffix. 

A reference to and comparison with the Icelandic names ( 
Landndmibdk and the Saxon tenants of Domesday Book will ] 
of great assistance to the reader. 

Mr Taylor points out setllemenls of these families in Engl|| 
Normandy, and Germany. Some of these are corruptions of the g

III. — Place-names 

' A local habitation and a name.' — Midsummer- Night'* s Dream, 

was the custom of the Norsemen and the Saxons to give their 
to the lands upon which they settled. 

ince it is that so many towns and villages in England as well 
<^ormandy show the name of the original occupier who appropriated 



British Family Names 



the soil by right of conquest, and the prefix is generally found in ibe 
possessive case common to all Teutonic nations. 

After the Norman Contjuest the followers of WiUiam, among whom 
the land was divided, adopted the title of the manor or estate granted 
to them by the king. 

These afterwards became their family names. 

Ivo de Taiilebois was made Baron of Kendal, but his descendant 
William, assumed the style of de Lancaster. Robert de Tours became 
Robert de Lowick from his English estate, as, in like manner, William 
le Fleming was William de Aldingham from his lordship of that manWi 
and Nigel, younger son of Robert de Slatford, inheriting the manor 
of Gresley, in the county of Derby, took the name and was known 
as Nigel de Gresley. This last family is one of the very few remainiag 
of those who have retained their lands since the Conquest. 

In the reign of Henry VIII., Welsh gentlemen, who had not done 
so in Norman times, adopted the name of their estates. It is very lik^ 
that in after-years change of residence was usually the cause of the 
beslowaJ of the original abode as a surname. 

About the thirteenth century another way of adopting place-names 
sprung up, as is seen from the regislers of wills in the Court of Hu* 
ing, London, a.d. i 358 to 135S, at Lincoln and other cities. 

The word 'aite,' as implying residence, if not possession, crept iiv 
and thereby arose such names as Aite Boure, Atte Brig, Atte Hash, 
Atte Hay, Atte KJrkstile, Atte Lane, Atte Maydens, Atte Stil^ 
Atte Well. Indeed, this custom may be traced back to Anglo-SaxOB 
times, for in a charter, No. 775 of the Codex Dip., there occurs Eildmar 
set BurhSm, and in No. 492, dated about 960, we have Godwine «t 
Fcchilm, Eddric eel Hd, .^Ifgir let MeSpaham. 

William Atwater was Bishop of Lincoln in 1574. 

In course of time the de and the atle were dropped, as the persofl 
using them lost their estates or changed their place of abode ; btf 
retaining the surname, ihcy wandered into various parts of the count!} 
as fancy or necessity led them. 

Hence it happens that many extraordinary surnames, which hs« 
been a puzzle to investigators hitherto, and almost defy derivatioi 
found to be traceable to some obscure spot in Great Britain or FranCft 

Richard Veretegan wrote in 1673 



But it is only a partial statement, as we know. Also, as Camden says, 



is true as far as it goes, for many other local names in that cou 
have given names to families. 

Names derived from localities are more common in England i 
' Scotland than in Wales and Ireland. 



When the country became settled under Edward the Confessor, 

1 the Norsemen, Saxon, and Welsh lived together with something 

i a suspension of their International feuds, the land was brought 

a semblance of law and order, and, consequently, offices of , 

Boencc and responsibility arose. 

"Bright, Steward, and Despencer are names of this period. They' 
I mean the same thing. Bryd is the Norse and Dispensator the ' 

i equivalent of Steward.

i above a knight), Arblasler (Balistarius), Eotiler (Butler), elc. 
Some, such as Abbot, Bishop, and Script ure-nanies, may have 
R^^naily been given to play-actors who took the parts in medieval 
s, as people now speak of the Ober-Ammergau actors by their 
£ names.

' What is yoiir name ? '— TintpcH, Act iii. Sc, I. 
, When Christianity spread among the northern nations in the elevc 
century, a baptismal name followed as a matter of course, and for a \ 
time was the only one possessed by the individual upon whom it was d 
ferred. Thus John, Peter, and Paul were great favourites, and those « 
were named in this way transmitted the Christian name to their deso 
ants, who became known as Janson, Johnson, Peterson, Patterson, Pol 
etc (N. %onr, pi. synir). In Wales and Cornwall, as well as in Dena 
Friesland, and the Netherlands, the final s alone served to mark the fi 
that it had become a patronymic. Indeed, it is remarkable that a ll 
proportion of the family names of Wales should be those of Teuto 
Christian, and other names, and is difficult to account for, as there \%\ 
evidence of a special legislative enactment (as was the case 
requiring the inhabitants of the Principality to adopt such dcsigru 
as would be understood by the English. Mr T. E. Morris thinks ' 
are sufficient grounds for believing that the Teutonic names i 
(Norman) invaders were gradually adopted, first by the large landow 
of Wales, a class which included noblemen and gentry, then by \ 
retainers and tenants, and finally by the ordinary common people.' 

Whether the final s indicates the family name or not, it makes'!

Wtund for us, in these days, to speak of the Whites, the Browns, ihe

In some instances the Christian name is undoubtedly a contraction

ind in old documents John's for Johannes, Will's for Witlelmus, Ricard's , 
ir Ricacdus, Edward's for Edwardus, Phillip's for Philippus, Jacob's for I

Edward III. was the first to promote woollen manufacture in England. 
He brought seventy families of Walloons for the purpose in 1331. A 
colony of Flemings was established in Pembrokeshire in the reign of 
Henry I. There is a list of the names of ' Foreigners ' in the town and 
ooon^ of Cambridge in the year 1440, including French, Dutch, Flemish, 
Iri^ and Scotch. French and Flemish names came into N.-W. Lincoln- 
rtiire and S.-E. Yorkshire with Vermuyden and the draining of 'The 
Levels' in the seventeenth century. The Irish Parliament in 1674 
d an Act granting letters of naturalisation to French and Flemish 
lot refugees. Colonies were founded at Dublin, Kilkenny, Port- 
, Waterford, Cork, and Lisburn. In 1709 a fleet was sent to 
1 by Queen Anne, which brought over about 7000 German 
tnls from the Palatinate of the Rhine. About 3000 were sent 
( North America, the remainder, except a few families which remained 
n England, settled principally in the County of Limerick. 

It 19 well known, moreover, that many French prisoners of war during 

le reign of George III. married or formed other ties during their 

ifltivity, and when peace was restored, remained in this country. To 

: may be added those who have been attracted to Great Britain by 

rt facilities of trade, or more political or individual liberty than ihey 

d at home. 

Many names bear a close resemblance to such as are at present 
asting in the North of Germany and in the Low Countries — a large 
nnber, indeed, being very little changed. 

The question arises, Are they direct importations, or are they derived 
kra^;h Frisian sources ? 
There is no doubt about many Frisian names having spread along the

southern shore of the Baltic, for the prevak-nce of the diminutive 'la^' 
in contradistinction to the Gerina.n 'chen,' is transparently obviou 
Nevertheless, many of them are difficult to trace, either through the 
Frisian, or those of ancient Scandinavia as found in Iceland. 

Further research may possibly throw more light upon this interesting 
but complicated subject 

Of these foreign names many have become naturalised in this couniij. 
The earliest instances occur among the Norman tenants in chief in 
Domesday Book. 

Those of more recent times will be readily distinguished as Aufienj 
Beauchamp, Caux, Drew, Durrant, Frere, Grand, Jacques, Le Neit^ 
Mone, Pettit, Roche, Sani, Vipond, etc. 

Sir W, Russell brought over settlers from Holland to drain die 
Cambridgeshire Fens. At Thomey there is a French Register of B^ 
tisms, 1653 lo 1737. 

The intimate relationship between Scotland, France, and the Neibtr- 
lands, which existed before and after the time of the ili-fated Queen 
Mary, will account for the presence of names in Scotland whicb lie 
clearly derived from the latter 



VIII. — FouNDUNG Names 
' Photbits, what a name ! '—Byron, 

There is every reason to believe that we are indebted to the pansh 
beadle and the workhouse officials for many extraordinary and ena 
ridiculous names which cannot be derived from any known sourc& 
They have been evolved from the imagination of the Bumbles of a pKt 
generation, as Charles Dickens shows us in 'Oliver Twist,' and OBJ 
remain a puzzle lo all who would attempt to clear them up, unless ibej 
are classed in this section. 

Indeed, it is a convenience to have a receptacle of this sort in whxh 
to stow away, until funher research comes to our aid, such names it 
philologists cannot yet account for, except upon the supposition 
the ingenuity of the public servants has suggested them. Some of I 
which have been a source of wonder to many for a long time, and 
supposed to be foundling names, can now be shown to possess 1 ltd 
historical signification. 

Possibly, by-and-by, more may be rescued, but in the meai 
they must be classified somehow, and it is better to put them on dK 
unknown list rather than invent a fanciful origin which may be, aftet4 
mere gue.ss-work. 

According to Bums* ' History of Parish Register^' p. 80, an Ac 
passed in the second year of Geoige 111., i76i-», specially directing ibll 
children received in a workhouse were, in cases where their names 
unknown, to have surnames given them by the overseers and church- 
wardens. 

That there was a custom of naming foundling children after tbe 
parishes wheie they have been picked up is proved by the entries in tt*' 
rasters of several of the I^ndon City (lurches. The Registers of tfat 




British Surnames

London, show that in that district alone, between 17^8 and 
less than 104 foundlings were christened, all of whom were 
Temple or Templer. Nicholas Aeons, after the parish of 
name, and Benelfink, Orgar, Sherehog, with many others, exist as 
les which may be all traced to this source. Other stray children 
.been named from the circumstances under which they were found. 
hrcr the signature of ' Peter Lombard,' a writer in the Church 
If has recently drawn attention to the registers of St Mary Woolnoth 
e »re these entries: 'A male child was found in our parish with 
any in his hand, and wa-s named accordingly Henry Penny.' 'A 
. found in the alley between the church and the stocks on the 
ling of St John's Day was named John Before Day.' 
L girl who was so picked up was christened Anne Monday, after 
Uy of the week, and a boy who was laid 'atte Mr Garrett's dore' 
christened ' John Bynight.' Such names as Christmas, Easter, 
mas, Paske, etc., may have been suggested by the season when a 
: was found. 

xnrcT gives, among other instances. Jack Parish, Tom Among-us, 
tNapkin Brooker as the names bestowed by the parish auihoriiics 
Ifeundlings. The last- mentioned, it is stated, was found by the 
L of a brook, tied up in a napkin. 

Lllbonc (from Holborn?) and such names as Lilywhite and Sweet- 
! may belong perhaps to this category. 

It the baptism of the children first taken into the Foundling H05- 
which was on the 29th March 1741, it is recorded that 'there was 
; ceremony a fine appearance of persons of quality and distinction. 
Giwx the Duke of Bedford, our President, their Graces the Duke 
Duchess of Richmond, the Countess of Pembroke, and several others, 
uring the children with their names and being iheit sponsors.' For 
after this it was the fashion to come down to the Foundhng on a 
Itf morning to be sponsor to a child, and to give it a name quite 
igruoua with its station and fortune. A child was left with a ^s" 
pinned to its clothes, and it was called Japhet Newland from 
me of the governor of the Bank of England, Abraham Newland, 
^ note. The last child taken in when the parhamentary control 
d was named Kitty Finis ! 
ladj sends that of a family named Haycock. She was told that 
Uber was found as an infant deserted under a haycock. The name 
ancommon, and may be otherwise accounted for. There is a 
Cumberland called Haycock, and Hayo and Heie are Frisian 
nal names, to which may be added the diminutive 'cock.'

A GREAT deal has been written about the Roll of Baltell Abbey and'^ 
companions of the Conqueror, which is doubtless of great interest to 
those who claim lo be descendants of the persons therein recorded. 

There was such a roll suspended in the great hall of the building, 
and it bore the names of 645 knights, but it has disappeared long ago, 
as well as the other relics of the battle, which were removed to Cowdray, 
and perished in the great fire there in 1793. 

There are several copies more or less imperfect. The lists wbicb 
appear to be the most authentic are : Duchesne's list, taken from the 
abbey charter, containing 405 names ; Leland's collection, with 498 
names; Magn/s catalogue, with 425 names; Delisle's, with 485 names. 
These are all of a much later date than the Conquest, probably ttmp. 
Ed. I. 

Of the great array of time-honoured names very few are now borne 
by direct representatives. They exist rather among the old gentry tbau 
in the peerage. In the majority of cases the later descendants of illus- 
trious families have sunk into poverty and obscurity unconscious of theii 
origin, and this was more likely to be the case with the younger branches 
since the name or title of the family went with the elder line that inherited 
the estates. 

The following names have been collected from the lists above 
mentioned. Many of them will be found in Domesday Book, and 
where such is the case they may be considered to be genuine followers of 
the Conqueror. It is obvious thai those which compare favourably with 
Domesday Book are the most reliable, and others which do not stand 
that test may be looked upon as of later date. The names of some of ' 
the Flemings who accompanied William are also included in this list. 

Much doubt has long existed as to the authenticity of the several 
versions which have appeared at different times, claiming lo be a roll of 
the names of the Norman invaders who survived the battle of Hastings, 
but it is manifest that many of those recorded, even if they were ever ■ 
upon the original document deposited with the monks of Battell AbbejTi I 



Norman Names 



arc noi found lo correspond with either the tenants-in-chief or the under- 1 
tenants of Domesday Book al the time of the Survey (a.d. 1086). On 
the other hand, the last mentioned — of whom there is a great number 1 
— have hardly a place upon the roll. ( 

It is well known that the heralds of the fourteenth and fifteenth ' 
centuries were not scrupulous in adding names to the list. 

Queen Isabella of France, the consort of Edward II., introduced in 
her train many personages bearing surnames previbusly unknown in 
England. 

The Rotuli Normannix, R. Hundredorum, and R. de Oblatis et 
Fintbus, lemp. Regis Johannis, Testa de Neville, Pipe Rolls, etc., are 
nltiable evidence as to Norman names. The place-names of Normandy 
have been added. 

The asterisk denotes a tenant -in-chief.
