The Norfleet surname comes from the name of the county of Norfolk, which is derived Old English words "norš," meaning "north," and "folc," meaning "people."

Norfleet Early Origins



The surname Norfleet was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1154 when William of Norfolk held estates.
