The name of Cutmore is Celtic in origin, arising from the rugged landscape of Wales. The name is directly derived from when the Cutmore family lived on Cudmore Farm in Bampton, in the county of Devon. The surname Cutmore belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Cutmore Early Origins



The surname Cutmore was first found in Devon, 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.

Cutmore Spelling Variations



Welsh surnames are relatively few in number, but they have an inordinately large number of spelling variations. There are many factors that explain the preponderance of Welsh variants, but the earliest is found during the Middle Ages when Welsh surnames came into use. Therefore, scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, which often resulted in a single person's name being inconsistently recorded over his lifetime. The transliteration of Welsh names into English also accounts for many of the spelling variations: the unique Brythonic Celtic language of the Welsh had many sounds the English language was incapable of accurately reproducing. It was also common for members of a same surname to change their names slightly, in order to signify a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations. For all of these reasons, the many spelling variations of particular Welsh names are very important. The surname Cutmore has occasionally been spelled Cudmore, Cadmore, Cadmoor, Cudmoor, Goodmore, Cudmor, Goodmer, Goodmoir and many more.
