History of the name
The earliest evidence that I have discovered of the name in England is in 1221. In France I have found evidence of one family group from circa 1620.
In the 15th -16th centuries there is evidence of churchwardens in Essex and of a marriage into the Cornwallis family. From the 16th - 19th centuries the name is associated with land owners, potters, brickmakers and cordwainers.
Distribution of the name
Early 1400 -1500 places associated with the name are Devon, Essex, Kent, Suffolk and Yorkshire. By the 17th century the name is almost exclusively found in East Anglia. In the mid 19th century the name spread to Yorkshire, Lancashire and Greater London as well as to Canada, New Zealand & USA.
The French branch is said to have originated in Normandy from England or Wales during the 100 Years' War.
Information includes births &/or baptisms from 1561, marriages from 1552 and deaths/burials from 1596. From c1400 I have transcriptions of wills, inventories, correspondence & local records, probate records, military records including photographs of all WWI CWGC memorials in France & Belgium, photographs of churches & some tombstones associated with families with this name and many other census and local records.
