Missendene Early Origins



The surname Missendene was first found in Buckinghamshire at either Great Missenden or Little Missenden, parishes that date back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when they were first listed collectively as Missedene. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The place name probably meant "valley where water-plants or marsh-plants grow," from the Old English words "mysse" + "denu." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
We must look to the chapel of Great Missenden to find the first records of the name. "In the parish was an abbey for Black canons, in honour of the Virgin Mary, founded in 1133 by Sir William de Missenden." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
