The Deporte surname comes from the Middle/Old English word "port," meaning "a harbor," or "market town" As such, the surname is thought to have been a topographic name for someone who lived near a port, or a market town.

Deporte Early Origins



The surname Deporte was first found in Hants and Dorset. The family claim descent from Hugo de Port who came to England at the Norman Conquest and held fifty-five lordships in those counties. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

A Hubert de Port was also a tenant in capite in Hampshire as listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

From this earliest record, the family quickly scattered. "The church [of Upper Areley, Staffordshire], which is situated on an eminence commanding a fine prospect, was first built by Henry de Port, in the reign of Henry I., and was rebuilt in the time of Edward I." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another branch of the family was found at early times in Derbyshire. "The manor belonged to Welbeck Abbey, Nottinghamshire, in the reign of Stephen. It was given by Henry VIII., in 1540, to Sir John Port, Knt., one of the justices of the king's bench." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
