Origins Available: English, Irish


The ancestors of the Hamp surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Hampton in the dioceses of Worcester, Hereford, London, Exeter, and Lichford.

Hamp Early Origins



The surname Hamp was first found in Staffordshire where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated at Wolverhampton with manor and estates in that shire. However, the name has three distinct origins: from the Old English word ham-tun as in "home farm, homestead"; from the Old English words hamm + tun, meaning "farmstead in an enclosure or river bend"; and finally from the Old English hean + tun meaning "high farmstead."

The earliest place name found was Hamtona in 716 which later became Hampton Lovett which is now a village and civil parish in the Wychavon district of the county of Worcestershire. The Domesday Book listed the following place names: Hamtune, Hantone, Hamntone Hantune, Hantone and Hantun.
