Fullthorp Early Origins



The surname Fullthorp 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca.
