Mirrington Early Origins



The surname Mirrington was first found in Durham where one of the first on record was Simon de Mereton in 1242. Alternatively, the name could have originated in Warwickshire at Meriden (Mereden), a parish that was anciently called Alspath, and formed part of the possessions of the Countess Godiva in 1043, and in the 12th year of the reign Edward II was the property of John de Segrave. Today, the parish is in the West Midlands and is the traditional center of England. Meriden literally means "pleasant valley" from the Old English "myre" + "denu." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The village of Kirk Merrington is also located in Durham and dates back to c. 1085 when it was first listed as Maerintun. By 1331, it was listed as Kyrke Merington. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
