The family name Abthorpe is thought to be originally taken from the place named Apethorpe, in Northamptonshire.

Abthorpe Early Origins



The surname Abthorpe was first found in Northumberland, where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient but turbulent no-man's land where the persecuted Many were given land by King Malcolm Canmore and later by King David of Scotland. Some were native Scots. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. The name was first recorded in England when Thomas Abetrop held estates in 1180 in that county.
