Early Origins of the Scarffe family


The surname Scarffe was first found in Yorkshire, where the name first appeared in the 13th century. The name Scarffe is either a nickname, or of ornamental origin. It comes from the old Norse word "skarfr," meaning "cormorant," a kind of large, black seabird. The name was probably given to its first bearer because of some imagined resemblance to the bird in question. It is also possible that the name had no real significance whatsoever, and was purely ornamental.
