Birkenshaw Early Origins



The surname Birkenshaw was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Before that, words and names were spelled according to sound, and, therefore, often appeared under several different spelling variations in a single document. Birkenshaw has been spelled Birkenshaw, Birkinshaw, Birkshaw, Burdenshaw and others.
