Matlach Early Origins



The surname Matlach was first found in Derbyshire, at Matlock, a parish, in the union of Bakewell, hundred of Wirksworth. "This place, which was formerly called Mesterford or Metesford, is equally celebrated for the beauty of its scenery, and the purity of its medicinal springs, and consists at present of the village and the baths, nearly a mile and a half distant from each other. The waters were first applied to medicinal uses about the end of the seventeenth century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Another source claims the early spellings of the place name differently as in Meslach [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
which was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 and later as Matlac in 1196. In this case, the place name literally meant "oak-tree where meetings are held," from the Old English "maethel" + "ac." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
