PREFACE. 



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

Although the vast catalogue of British surnames may not have been 
exhausted, yet by many years' labour more than eight thousand repre- 
sentative modern names extracted from directories, newspapers, voting 
lists, etc., have been traced to their source, and when it is remembered 
that this includes the numerous variations and ramifications of these 
patronymics, the extensive scope of this work will then be appreciated 

The utility of the lists of ancient names to the student of local 
etymology must at once be apparent, whilst to the genealogist (whether 
British, Colonial or American) the revelations as to the transformation 
of family names will be of the utmost service.

INTRODUCTION. 



' A painful work it is and more than difficult, wherein what toyle hath been taken, 
as no man thinketh, so no man believeth, but he that hath made the trial.' — 
Anthony X Wood. 

DURING a lengthened research in studying the place-names of the 
Danelagh (the district north and east of Watling Street, the old 
Roman road from London to Chester), the writer accumulated 
a great number of names from ancient sources necessary for unravelling 
the tangled skein of local etymology. 

It occurred to him that these might be utilized in the treatment of 
British surnames, and his first idea was to publish the lists with an intro- 
ductory chapter on the origin of surnames, for the use of students of this 
branch of archaeology, who were in need of such things, for easy reference. 

With this view the author wrote an article in the Antiquary (September, 
189 1), in order to draw attention to the subject, as Lower's 'English 
Surnames ' is both out of date and altogether unreliable. 

After this he met with, for the first time, the last-mentioned author's 
' Patronymica Britannica,' a more ambitious work, and a great improve- 
ment upon the previous attempt, but still deficient in precise information 
and investigation. 

The dictionary form, however^ seemed to be the best for ready reference, 
and he thought a few examples, to show the way in which he had wrought 
out the names, would be of service to those who are interested in this 
important study. Hence it came about that this work has gradually grown 
until it assumes its present proportions. 

The chief object has been to avoid anything like guess-work or fancy 
interpretation, and to seek for a definition among such sources as seemed 
likely to supply it, so that, when a word could not be referred to any 
reasonable origin, it was put on the shelf until time, experience, and dis- 
covery should verify it. 

Besides the works of reference which he consulted, he found it necessary 
to prepare, for his own use, the lists of names already mentioned, and 
these have been of so much service that he trusts they will be found 
equally available for all those who wish to enter upon this arduous but 
fascinating task. They will certainly be more readily turned over now 
they are in type than when in manuscript. 



British Family Names 



In addition to these he has examined directories and maps of Great 
Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Flanders, Germany, Nor- 
mandy, etc. 

Many a name that seemed to defy all explanation was found to be that 
of some obscure village, so disguised as to be almost past recognition. 
Who, for instance, would expect to see Sevenoaks in Snooks, St. Olave's 
Street in Tooley Street, St. Etheldreda in Tawdry, Douglas in Diggles, 
Wilburgham in Wilbraham, Tuberville in Troublefield, Longueville in 
Longfellow, Longchamps in Longshanks, Blondeville in Blomfield, 
Adburgham in Abraham and Abram, Renshaw in Wrencher and Wrinch, 
Wymondham in Wyndham ? 

Indeed, as Mr. Lower truly says : 

' Corruptions which many family names have undergone tend to baffle alike the 
genealogical and etymological inquirer.' 

The following will serve as illustrations of the corruption to which 
names are liable. The family name of Weewall (N. Vifill, D. Wivet) 
occurs frequently in the parish register of Peckleton, Leicestershire, and 
between 1735 and 1750 there are many variations of the spelling, scarcely 
two entries being alike. It appears as Whewaugh, Whewvaugh, Wheevaw, 
Weway, Weevvaa, Wheewhal, Whewwhaw, Whealwhal, Weewal, Wheelwall. 
In the North of England it took the form of Whewell. 

Tiie name of the great English dramatist is generally spelt Shakespeare, 
but there are many ways of spelling the name according to English 
orthography. Here are a few of them as appearing in old documents : 
Shakspere, Shaxpere, Shakspire, Shaxspere, Schaksper, Shakespere, Shak- 
speare, Schakespeyr, Shaxespeare, Shagspere, Shaxpur, Shaxsper, Shak- 
sper, Shackspeare, Saxpere, Shakespire, Shakespeire, Shackespeare, 
Shakaspear, Shaxper, Shakspear, Shaxpeare, Shakspeere, Shaxbure, 
Shackspeyr, Shakespear, Schakesper, etc. 

Goodwin is found in ancient documents as Godden, Goddin, Goddinge, 
Godewyn, Godin, Godwin, Godwyn, Goodden, Gooding, Goodyng, 
Gooden, Goodwen, Goodinge, Goodwin, Goodwyn, Goodwyne. 

Bugge as Buci, de Bougy, de Bucy, Bugi, Boci, Bogge, Busse, Boge, 
Buggey, Bussey, Bogg, Boag, Boake, Bogue, Beucy, Beucey, Boogie, 
Buggy, Buggie, Bukie, Bouky, Boog, etc. 

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



BRITISH SURNAMES. 



'This is a subject which involves many curious questions of antiquarian interest, 
bearing upon the language, habits and pursuits of our countrymen in bygone days. 
It is one, also, that immediately concerns every man who feels an honest pride in being 
called by his father's name.' — Notes and Queries, vi. 201. 

'To find out the true originall of surnames is full of difficulty.' — Camden. 

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

According to Lower, the practice commenced in Normandy, and 
gradually extended itself to this country ; but the use of surnames was 
occasionally hereditary among the Anglo-Saxons before the Conquest, 
and the general adoption of family designations. 

He quotes from a document referred to in Sharon Turner's ' History 
of the Anglo-Saxons as existing among the Cottonian MSS. ' (No. 1,356 
in Cod. Dipl.), bearing no date, but undoubtedly earlier than 1066. 

It states that 

' Hwita Hatte was a keeper of bees at Hcethfelda, and Tate Hatte, his daughter, was 
the mother of Wulsige, the shooter ; and Lulle Hatte, the sister of Wulsige, Helstan 
had for his wife in Wealadene. Wifus and Dunne and Seolce were born in Hcethfelda. 
Duding Hatte, the son of Wifus, is settled at Wealadene ; and Ceolmund Hatte, the son 
of Dunne, is also settled there ; and ^Etheleah Hatte, the son of Seolce, is also there ; 
and Tate Hatte, the sister of Cenwald, Maeg hath for his wife at Weligan ; and Ealdelm, 
the son of Herethrythe, married the daughter of Tate. Werlaff Hatte, the father of 
Werstan, was the rightful owner of Hcethfelda.' 

In the time of King Edward the Confessor there was among the Saxon 
tenants in Suffolk one Leuric Hobbesune. Suert Magno or Manni, 
Godric Poinc, Tedricus Pointel, Siuuard Rufus, Stigand Soror also occur. 

At the time of the Domesday Survey they were becoming more 
numerous, for both the tenants-in-chief and the under tenants possessed 
them. Thus we find Alwin Dodesune, Godric Cratel, William Goizen- 
boded, William Hosed, Hugo Lasne, Walter Achet, Osmund Angevin, 
Roger Arundel, Bernard Barb, Walter Bee, Hugo Bolebec, William 
Bonvaslet, Aluin Coc (bedellus), William Denomore, Roger Deramis, eta 

Various writers have treated the subject of British surnames in different 
ways from Camden and Lower downwards. Some have produced very 
amusing articles by grouping the most extraordinary names they coul 



British Family Names 



find together, as the names of birds, beasts, flowers, objects in common 
use, trades, etc. 

A few have made some attempts to give the derivations of well-known 
names according to their own classification, ignoring altogether the possi- 
bility of many being traced to extremely ancient sources. 

Names which betoken association with territorial possession and 
occupations, and Christian names also, are not difficult to distinguish ; but 
the ■ oldest names of all are those which belong to the Norse or Frisian 
settlers, except such as are probably of Celtic or British origin. 

It is a well-known fact that many family names are peculiar to certain 
localities, where they have remained for many generations, as can be 
proved from the old church registers. The spread of railways and the 
increased facilities for locomotion in every way are fast altering the old 
state of things, however, especially where there is a sudden development 
of one or more local industries, causing a great influx of strangers. 

In remote country places, and particularly in agricultural districts, 
many of the old family names still remain — some, indeed, are seldom 
found in any other part of England. 

In one district in Englanda marked peculiarity in the names of the people 
exists. This is known as the Danish Settlement (Danalagh), which, by 
agreement between Alfred and Guthrum, renewed by Edmund and 
Anlaf in 941, was divided from the Saxon kingdom by a line passing 
along the Thames, the Lea and the Ouse, following the course of Watling 
Street, the old Roman road running in a straight line from London by 
Stony Stratford to Chester. 

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

The family nomenclature of this part of the country undoubtedly re- 
quires particular treatment. It is not surprising, therefore, to discover 
many personal names, either of pure Norse patronymics or of places 
or qualities. 

In East Anglia there is one remarkable peculiarity about the family 
names. A large proportion of them are monosyllabic. This singularity 
is so striking that it forces itself upon the most casual observer. Perhaps 
it is owing to the large infusion of names of Dutch and Flemish origin. 

Moreover, strangely enough, the local pronunciation of names of 
persons and places has long outlived the many orthographical changes 
which took place in our written language while men spelt words phonetic- 
ally, or as fancy dictated. Accordingly we find in old records, from 
Domesday Book to later times, some strange variations, in some cases 
making the derivation from the original source by no means easy. 

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

The language — dialect if preferred — of the North of England is to this 
day full of words and expressions which can only be explained by the 
help of the Icelandic as the representative of the old Northern languages 
spoken by the Scandinavian settlers in England. The colonization of 



British Surnames 



Iceland was included in that stream of emigration which began to leave 
Norway a.d. 852, and spread along the coasts of Normandy, England, 
Ireland, and Scotland up to the end of the eleventh century. For about 
four hundred years afterwards the old Norse tongue was locked up in 
that remarkable Northern island, and preserved almost incorrupt, while 
the mother country became affected and its original language consider- 
ably modified by contact with other European nations. 

In a sort of Domesday Book, compiled by the authorities in Iceland 
(Islands Landnami-bok), there was, among other matters recorded and 
deposited in the cathedral of Reykyavik, a roll of the names of the 
original settlers (of which perhaps a third are women) and the lands they 
occupied, making about five thousand proper names. 

This remarkable document, which has been preserved, throws great 
light upon the derivation of many personal and local names in Scotland 
and Northern England hitherto considered to be obscure, and it is as 
necessary to the antiquary as the so-called ' Roll of Battell Abbey ' or 
the Domesday Book of the Conqueror. It is, in fact, the chief store- 
house for genealogical knowledge. 

The study of the Icelandic in its relation to old and provincial English 
and its comparison with Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Frisian, Flemish, 
and German, has opened out a wonderful field of never-ending interest, 
and made us acquainted with things we never before dreamed of in 
connection with this subject. 

In the course of his researches the writer has picked up a few odds 
and ends of information which may perhaps be useful to others. It is 
possible to derive some instruction and to extract no little amusement 
from the carrying out of a train of speculation on the origin of names, 
so, if these details appear somewhat dry, it is to be hoped they will be 
set down as a humble effort to deal as carefully with a special and difficult 
subject as the nature of the materials within reach and limited qualifica- 
tions for the task will permit of. It may appear to some, possibly, that 
the importance of the old Norse has been over-estimated, and not enough 
credit given to the Anglo-Saxon. 

Perhaps it is so ; but, besides the names of places, it must be admitted 
that very many modern English words show early Northern influence, and 
even in Anglo-Saxon times the language was so blended with Scandina- 
vian words that there were often double expressions for the same thing. 
The fact is, we have no reliable Anglo-Saxon dictionary. No one can 
say with authority what the Anglo-Saxon language really was in its earliest 
stage, what it afterwards became when a great infusion of Scandinavian 
words was thrown into it, and what it was as it degenerated into Semi- 
Saxon after the conquest.* 

It seems clear that the Frisian dialect of the Low German gives the 
best idea of the original so-called Anglo-Saxon, for it is the modern 
representative of the language of old Dutch Friesland, whence so many 
of those who settled in England (after the departure of the Romans) 
came. 

This appears to be borne out by the fact that the early English mis- 
sionaries (notably St. Boniface) made their way to that country because

it was the home of their fathers, and there was no more difficulty with 
the language than in the case of a citizen of the United States visiting 
Britain. 

It will be seen that even at this early period names were derived from 
localities, occupations, personal and mental qualities and peculiarities as 
nicknames, social relations, etc. Further, in common with the Teutonic 
races, the Norse used diminutives, or pet names, which afterwards stuck 
to the individuals so designated and became family names. 

The terminations ing, kin, and son, so common in English names, are 
derived from the Norse ingr, kyn, and sonr, the r being dropped in 
compounds. The Danish make the last sen. Also kyn must not be 
confounded with the diminutive-endings : Germ., chen ; Fris., ken and ke ; 
Flem., kin ; which have quite a different meaning and are used in pet 
names chiefly. 

The diminutives, Frisian, ken, ke, ock, and cock;* Norman French, 
et, ette, let, ot, otte, ell ; Old Norse, i, a, ki, ka, gi, ga, ungr, ingr, lingr, 
should be noted. 

Let us then apply the test of the old world sources to the family names 
of this country, comparing them in the first instance with those of the 
Northern nations, the Scandinavians (Danes so called), the Frisians (i.e., 
Saxons), the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) in Domesday Book, and, in 
the second place, with existing names in Northern Germany, Sweden, 
Denmark, Normandy, Holland, and Flanders. 

In addition to these quarries, which the writer will endeavour to work, 
it may be mentioned that there are many names which clearly bear the 
stamp of foreign origin and have not yet been so entirely metamorphosed 
but that their Continental source may be discovered. An Act of the 
Irish Parliament (5 Edw. IV., c. 3, a.d. 1465) ordained that every 
Irishman dwelling betwixt or amongst Englishmen in the counties of 
Dublin, Myeth, Vriel, and Kildare, should dress like Englishmen and 
take an English surname, of a town (as Sutton, Chester, etc.), or colour 
(as white, black), or art (as smith, carpenter, etc.), or office (as cook or 
butler), and he and his issue should use the same under a specified 
penalty. Thus, O'Gowan became Smith and Maclntyre Carpenter, etc. 
Most surnames will be found to come under one or other of the following 
heads :

Nicknames. 


5- 


Trade names.

Clan or tribal names.

* There has been much controversy over the termination ' cock.' It appears to be 
derived from the Frisian gbk or kb'k, a foolish, silly, awkward person, hence the Scotch 
gowk. The Fris. JankSk (Johncock) is equivalent to the German Hans Wurst. At 
first applied to children as a check to thoughtlessness, it would become gradually used 
as a diminutive. Cock and ock are akin to ke. 



British Surnames 



I. — Nicknames. 
'You had not your name for nothing.' — Old Proverb. 

Unquestionably the oldest names of all are those derived from by- 
names, given on account of a strong peculiarity of figure, feature, or 
character, deed of prowess, eccentricity of dress, speech or carriage. 

Among primitive nations the slightest deviation from the ordinary 
course of life or difference among his fellows was enough to mark a man, 
especially where a striking cognomen was readily applied. Fleetness of 
foot, a mighty hunter, skill in the use of a particular weapon, or the very 
opposite, gave rise to a name implying praise or contempt. Indeed, the 
most trifling cause served to invent a title by which a man was distin- 
guished from his contemporaries. When King Magnus assumed the 
Highland dress he became known as Berbeinn (Bareleg) among his 
followers, and this is preserved to us in the modern though Puritan- 
sounding Barebones. 

A man became notorious on account of a fearful scar upon his leg, 
hence he was called Orra-beinn (Scar-leg), which we see in Horrabin to 
this day. 

In the Orkneys the Norse earl Einar gained the soubriquet of ' Turf- 
Einar ' (Torf-Einarr) from having taught the Norsemen to dig peat, he 
having probably learnt it himself from the Gaelic tribes in Scotland. 

Blund and Blunt (BluntSr, dozing, slumber), Brock (Brdki), Hannay 
(Hani, a cock), Hacker and Harker (Hakr), Harfoot (H6ra-fotr, a Danish 
king), Read, Reader (HreSr), Rell (Hrella), Rooke (Hnikr), Root 
(Hnitr), Hook (Hiikr), Carter (Kottr, a cat), Kemp, Camp, (Kampi, a 
champion), Capps, Capper (Kappi), Kitchen (Kikini), Kimber (Kimbi), 
Cropper (Kroppr), Maxey (Maxi), Masey, Macey (Masi), Monk (Munki), 
Orry (Orri, a moor fowl), Peak, Pick (Pik), Payne (Peini), Ramm 
(Ramr, strong), Spurr (Sporr, a sparrow), Stott (Stoti, foolish), Sandys 
(Sandi), Sellers, Sell (Selr, a seal). Silver (Silfri), Strong (Strangi), Scarth 
(ScarSi, hare-lip), Skinner (Skinni), Scory (Skorri), Skeat, Skett (Skyti, 
a marksman, a shooter), Stubbs (Stubbi), Syers, Siers (Syr), Young 
(Ungi) Horrocks, (Orrek) are familiar names derived from old Norse 
nicknames. 

Among these also may be classed pet names. In girls Sigga from 
Sig-riSr, Gunna from Gut5-run, Inga from Ing-unn, Imba from Ingi-bjorg, 
Gudda from GuS-rior, etc. 

In boys Siggi from Sig-urSr, Gvendr from GuS-mundr, Simbi from Sig- 
mundr, Brynki from Bryn-jdlfr, Steinki from Stein-grimr, Mangi from 
Magnus, etc. 

A list of these will be found in the appendix to the Norse names. 

Of later date may be mentioned that of Fortescue, said to have been 
bestowed on Sir Richard le Fort, one of the leaders of the Conqueror's 
army at the Battle of Hastings, who had the good fortune to protect his 
chief by bearing before him the escue, or shield. 

The name of Plantagenet, borne by eight successive kings of England, 
originated with Fulke or Foulques, Count of Anjou, about the twelfth 
century, who went ori a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and wore in his helmet,

as a mark of his humility, a piece of planta genista, or broom. Armstrong 
and Strongitharm arose from some feat of strength ; Santerer was one 
who had been to the Holy Land (Sainte Terre) ; Romer, one who had 
been to Rome ; Palmer, a pilgrim, etc. 

Again, Applejohn, Brownjohn, Littlejohn, Micklejohn, Prettyjohn, 
Properjohn, Upjohn, etc., are probably of this class. The French have 
Beaujean, Bonjean, Grandjean, Grosjean, Henryjean, Klinjean, Mallejean, 
Neujean, Petitjean. 

II. — Clan or Tribal Names. 

' My foot is on my native heath and my name is MacGregor. ' — Scott. 

According to the Rev. Dr. Todd : 

' Clan signifies children or descendants. The tribe being descended from a common 
ancestor, the chieftain, as the representative of that ancestor, was regarded as the 
common father of the clan, and they as his children.' 

The Gaelic Mac, the Irish 0', the British Ap, the Norse ungar, the 
Frisian ingar and en, the Anglo-Saxon ing, the Norman Fitz,* are all 
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 Veringen, 
originally from what is still called the Vceringifjord in Norway, formed 
the celebrated Varangian Guard of the Byzantine Emperors, which was 
afterwards recruited largely from the North, and especially from Britain. 

The following list, compiled from that excellent work, 'Words and Places,' 
by the Rev. Isaac Taylor, will be found to contain ancient Scandinavian 
and Frisian family names, with the Old English or Anglo-Saxon suffix. 

A reference to and comparison with the Icelandic names of the 
Landnamabdk and the Saxon tenants of Domesday Book will prove of 
great assistance to the reader. 

Mr. Taylor points out settlements of these families in England, 
Normandy, and Germany.

* Verstegan is of opinion that the prefix Fitz originated in Flanders. It is remark- 
able that it is now unknown in France, and that it does not occur in the ancient 
chronicles of that country (Noble). 

The generally accepted idea is that it is derived from the Latin filius, Fr. fils, old 
Norman Fr. filz,fiz, fitz. It has been used to distinguish the illegitimate children of 
kings and princes of royal blood. Many Irish families substituted Fitz for Mac in 
Norman times.

British Surnames 1 1 

III. — Place-names. 

' A local habitation and a name.' — Midsummer Nights Dream. 

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

Hence it is that so many towns and villages in England as well as in 
Normandy show the name of the original occupier who appropriated the 
soil by right of conquest, and the prefix generally is found in the posses- 
sive case common to all Teutonic nations. 

After the Norman Conquest the followers of William, 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 Taillebois 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 manor, 
and Nigel, younger son of Robert de Statford, 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 remaining of those 
who have retained their lands since the Conquest. 

It is very likely that in after-years change of residence was usually the 
cause of the bestowal of the original abode as a surname. 

About the fourteenth century another way of adopting place-names 
sprung up, as is seen from the registers of wills at Lincoln and other 
cities. 

The word ' atte,' as implying residence, if not possession, crept in, and 
thereby arose such names as Atte Boure, Atte Brigg, Atte Hash, Atte 
Hay, Atte Kirkstile, Atte Lane, Atte Maydens, Atte Stile, Atte Well. 

William Atwater was Bishop of Lincoln in 1574. 

In course of time the de and the atte were dropped, as the persons 
using them lost their estates or changed their place of abode ; but 
retaining the surname, they wandered into various parts of the country 
as fancy or necessity led them. 

Hence it happens that many extraordinary surnames, which have been 
a puzzle to investigators hitherto, and almost defy derivation, are found 
to be traceable to some obscure spot in Great Britain or France. 

It used to be said that 

' In ham and by and ford and tun 
Most of English surnames run. ' 

But it is only a partial statement, as we know. Also the old saw, 

' By tre, pol, and pen, 
Ye shall know the Cornishmen,' 

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

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



12 British Family Names 

IV. — Official Names. 

' I am become a name.' — TENNYSON. 

When the country became settled under Edward the Confessor, and 
the Norsemen, Saxon, and Welsh lived together with something like a 
suspension of their international feuds, the land was brought into a sem- 
blance of law and order, and, consequently, offices of influence and 
responsibility arose. 

Bright, Steward, and Despencer are names of this period. They all 
mean the same thing. Bryti is the Norse and Dispensator the Latin 
equivalent of Steward. 

Lagman (lawgiver), Fawcett (Forseti, judge), Alderman, Reeve, Sheriff, 
Tabberer (TabarSr, a Tabard), Chamberlain (Caroerarius), Chancellor 
(Canceler), Chaplain (Capellanus), Clerk (Clericus), Deacon (Diaconus), 
Beadle (Bedellus), Latimer (Latinarius, or interpreter), Miles (Miles, a 
soldier), Marshall (Marescal), Redman (Radman), Sumner or Somner 
(Chaucer's Sompnoure, a summoner or apparitor), Poynder (a bailiff), 
Parker (Park-keeper), Palliser (Park-pailings keeper), Franklin (a free- 
holder), Vavasour or Valvasour* (an office or dignity below a baron and 
above a knight), Arblaster (Balistarius), Botiler (Butler), etc. 

V. — Trade Names. 
' A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.' — Othello. 

As might be expected, a man's occupation gave him notoriety, 
especially if he were skilled in his handicraft. 

Even among primitive nations there seems to have been a tendency to 
adopt this mode of distinguishing an artificer by his calling. 

The Norse Skapti, originally a shaft-maker, became a nickname, and 
afterwards a personal name as Scapti and Scafti, the Scotch form of which 
is Shafto. Sneypir, a snipper, gives us Snepp and Snape; Dengir, one 
who whets, Dangar, Danger, Dunger; Kembir, a comber, Kimber, 
Kimball, Kimbell, Kemble. 

In Domesday Book occur Arbalistarius (a crossbowman), Aurifaber 
(goldsmith), Arcuarius (bowyer), Artifex (workman), Accipitrarius (fal- 
coner), Cocus (cook), Carpentarius, Censorius, Cubicularius (groom of 
the chamber), Dapifer (a server), Faber (smith), Forestarius, Harparius, 
Hostarius (ostler ?), Ingeniator, Joculator, Larderius, Lorimarius (bridle- 
maker), Monialis, Machinator, Medicus, Porcarius (swineherd), Piscator 
(fisher), Pincerna (butler), Portarius (porter), Stalrus, Staller (groom), 
Stirman, Scutularius (page), Scriba, Tonsor, Venator (huntsman). 

In Old English times we find, according to Lower, Massinger (Fr., 
Massager, a messenger), Pottinger (apothecary), Brownsmith (a maker of 
' brown bills ' ?) Nasmith (nail-smith ?), Ferrier and Farrier (horse-shoer), 

* The Norman kings had an officer who kept ward at the entrances and borders of 
the realm, ad valvas Regni. 



British Surnames 13 



Jenner (joiner), Furner (Fr., Fournier, a baker), Lavender (Fr., Lavandier, 
a washerman), Pullinger (Fr., Boulanger, a baker), Pointer (a maker of 
' points,' an obsolete article of dress), Pilcher (a maker of pilches, the 
great coat of the fourteenth century), Shearman and Sharman (one who 
shears worsteds, fustians, etc. — a ' cutter ' ?), Caird (a travelling tinker), 
Maunder (a beggar), Kidder and Kidman (a pedlar; N., Kyta, to hawk, 
deal), Crowther (one who plays upon the crowd ; Welsh, crwth, a rude 
sort of violin), Arkwright (a maker of meal-chests ?), Polter and Pulter 
(poulterer), etc. 

It is open to question, however, whether some of the names popularly 
ascribed to occupations, such as Baker, Barber, Beadle, Botwright, 
Butcher, Carter, Cartwright, Cooper, Carver, Collier, Driver, Dyer, 
Glaisher, Iremonger, Packer, Painter, Pinder, Pointer, Plummer, Potter, 
Poulter, Plowright, Nailer, Osier, Sharman, Shearman, Sheppard, Skinner, 
Walker, Wheeler, Warrener, Tanner, Tinker, Tucker, Turner. Tyler, etc., 
will not bear a different interpretation. The reader is invited to study 
these names in their proper places. 



VI. — Christian Names. 

'What is your name ?' — Tempest, Act III., Sc. I. 

When Christianity spread among the northern nations in the eleventh 
century, a baptismal name followed as a matter of course, and for a long 
time was the only one possessed by the individual upon whom it was con- 
ferred. Thus John, Peter, and Paul were great favourites, and those 
who were named in this way transmitted the Christian name to their 
descendants, who became know as Janson, Johnson, Peterson, Patterson, 
Poison, etc. (N. sonr, pi. synir.). In Wales and Cornwall, as well as in 
Flanders, the final 5 alone served to mark the fact that it had become a 
patronymic. 

Of these names there are also many diminutives and modifications, as 
Jon, Ion, Jan, Jane, Jennis, Jenner, jenkin, Jinks. In like manner we 
find Pete, Peet, Pate, Pett, Pitt, Pittar. Also Paul, Spaull, Powell, Pull, 
Pulley, Powley, Pollyn, Poll, Pole, Pullein, Pulleyne, Poole, etc. 

VII. — Foreign Names. 

I cannot tell what the dickens his name is.' — Merry Wives of Windsor, Act III., Sc. z. 

Some of these are undoubtedly Norman, others are more recent, and 
may presumably be set down to Huguenot and other refugee emigrants, 
or to the influx of followers of the Orange or Hanoverian Dynasties. 

It is well known, moreover, that many French prisoners of war during 
the reign of George III. married or formed other ties during their 
captivity, and when peace was restored, remained in this country. To 
these may be added those who have been attracted to Great Britain by 
greater facilities of trade, or more political or individual liberty than they 
found at home. 



14 British Family Names 

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

The question arises, Are they direct importations, or are they derived 
through Frisian sources ? 

There is no doubt about many Frisian names having spread along the 
southern shore of the Baltic, for the prevalence of the diminutive ' ke,' 
in contradistinction to the German *chen,' is transparently obvious. 
Nevertheless, there are many of them patronymics which are difficult to 
trace, either through the Frisian, or from 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 naturalized in this country. 
The earliest instances occur among the Norman tenants-in-chief in 
Domesday Book. 

Those of more recent times will be readily distinguished as Aufrere, 
Beauchamp, Caux, Drew, Durrant, Frere, Grand, Jacques, Le Neve, 
Motte, Pettit, Roche, Sant, Vipond, etc. 



VIII. — Foundling Names. 
' Phoebus, what a name !' — Byron. 

There is every reason to believe that we are indebted to the parish 
beadle and the workhouse officials for many extraordinary and even 
ridculous names which cannot be derived from any known sources. 
They have been evolved from the imagination of the bumbles of a past 
generation, as Charles Dickens shows us in 'Oliver Twist,' and they 
remain a puzzle to all who would attempt to clear them up, unless they 
are classed in this section. 

Indeed, it is a convenience to have a receptacle of this sort in which to 
stow away, until further research comes to our aid, such names as philo- 
logists cannot yet account for, except upon the supposition that the 
ingenuity of the public servants has suggested them. Some of those 
which have been a source of wonder to many for a long time, and were 
supposed to be foundling names, can now be shown to possess a real 
historical signification. 

Possibly, by-and-by, more may be rescued, but in the meantime they 
must be classified somehow, and it is better to put them on the unknown 
list rather than invent a fanciful origin which may be, after all, mere 
guess-work. 

That there was a custom of naming foundling children after the parishes 
where they have been picked up is proved by the entries in the registers 
of several of the London City churches. Nicholas Aeons, after the 
parish of that name, and Benetfink, Orgar, Sherehog, with many others, 
exist as surnames which may be all traced to this source. Other stray 
children have been named from the circumstances under which they 
were found 



British Surnames 15 



Under the signature of ' Peter Lombard,' a writer in the Church Times 
has recently drawn attention to the registers of St. Mary Woolnoth where 
are these entries : ' A male child was found in our parish with a penny in 
his hand, and was named accordingly Henry Penny.' ' A child found in 
the alley between the church and the stocks on the morning of St. John's 
Day was named John Before Day.' 

A girl who was so picked up was christened Anne Monday, after the 
day of the week, and a boy who was laid ' atte Mr. Garrett's dore ' was 
christened ' John Bynight.' 

Lower gives, among other instances, Jack Parish, Tom Among-us, and 
Napkin Brooker as the names bestowed by the parish authorities on 
foundlings. The last-mentioned, it is stated, was found by the side of 
a brook, tied up in a napkin. 

Allbone (from Holborn ? ) and such names as Lilywhite and Sweetapple 
may belong perhaps to this category. 

A lady sends that of a family named Haycock. She was told that 
the father was found as an infant deserted under a haycock. The name 
is not uncommon, and may be otherwise accounted for. There is a hill 
in Cumberland called Haycock, and Hayo and Heie are Frisian personal 
names, to which may be added the diminutive ' cock.' 

Indeed, Heij-Koch is a Dutch proper name.

NORMAN NAMES. 

A great deal has been written about the Roll of Battell Abbey and the 
companions of the Conqueror which is doubtless of great interest to those 
who claim to 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 which 
appear to be the most authentic are : Duchesne's list, taken from the 
abbey charter, containing 405 names ; Leland's collection, with 498 
names ; Magny's catalogue, with 425 names ; Delisle's, with 485 names. 
These are all of a much later date than the Conquest. 

Of the great array of time-honoured names very few are now borne by 
direct representatives. They exist rather among the old gentry than in 
the peerage. In the majority of cases the later descendants of illustrious 
families have sunk into poverty and obscurity unconscious of their 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 men- 
tioned. 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 Con- 
queror. It is obvious that those which compare favourably with Domes- 
day 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 to 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 Abbey, 
are not found to correspond with either the tenants-in-chief or the under- 
tenants of Domesday Book at the time of the Survey (a.d. 1086). On 
the other hand, the last mentioned — of whom there are a great number — 
have hardly a place upon the roll. 

It is well known that the heralds of the fourteenth and fifteenth cen- 
turies 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 previously unknown in 
England. 

The Rotuli Normanniae, R. Hundredorum, and R. de Oblatis et 
Finibus, temp. Regis Johannis, are valuable evidence as to Norman 
names. The place-names of Normandy have been added. 

The asterisk denotes a tenant-in-chief.
