Foulthorp Early Origins



The surname Foulthorp was first found in Durham where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that county.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time.
