An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Norhampton surname is derived from the Middle English words "north" and "toun," meaning "town." It may have originally been a topographic name for someone living to the north of a main settlement, or a habitational name from any of several places named with this phrase, such as Norrington in Wiltshire.

Norhampton Early Origins



The surname Norhampton was first found in Worcestershire, 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 1272 when Robert of Norinton held estates. The family may have derived their name from Norrington in Wiltshire about the year 1200 but we find no record of an individual from that county.
