The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Foxworthy has been recorded under many different variations, including Folksworth, Foulkesworth, Foulksworth, Folkesworth, Follsworth and many more.

First found in Cambridgeshire at Folksworth, a small village and parish, in the union of Peterborough, hundred of Norman-Cross. Traditionally part of Huntingdonshire, the village has remained small over the centuries but dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Folchesworde. [1] Literally, the place name means "enclosure of a man called Folc," from the Old English personal name + "worth." [2] St Helen's Church on Morborne Road was first built in 1150 AD and was later restored in 1850.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Foxworthy or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
