Desburgh Early Origins



The surname Desburgh was first found in Northumberland at Desborough, a town and parish in the union of Kettering, hundred of Rothwell. The parish dates back to at least the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Dereburg. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
By 1166, the place name had evolved into Deresburc and literally meant "stronghold or fortress of a man called Deor," having derived from the Old English personal name + "burgh." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
One of the first records of the surname was found in 1216 when John de Desburgh held estates in the area. St Giles Church is the oldest surviving building in the town and was built around 1225 AD. It is believed to stand on the site of an earlier Saxon church. The Old Manor House dates back to the late 17th-century origins and was held by Ferdinando Poulton, a Roman Catholic lawyer and Lord of the Manor; he was reputedly one of the Gunpowder Plot conspirators.
