Meltzer Early Origins



The surname Meltzer was first found in the East Riding of Yorkshire at Metham, a township, in the parish and union of Howden, wapentake of Howdenshire. "The township comprises 920 acres, of which two-thirds are arable. Metham Hall was built by Sir George Metham, whose family were long seated here." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
At the time of the Domesday census, in 1086, Metham was occupied by Ilbert de Lacy, a Norman noble.

Some of the family were later found at Marr in the West Riding of Yorkshire. "It was once the residence of the family of Metham, of whose spacious and handsome mansion considerable remains existed some years since." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
