The surname Sculthorpe is a distinguished Anglo-Saxon surname whose roots can be traced back to the Vikings who once dominated the shores of Britain. The name is derived from "Sculthorpe," the name of a parish in Norfolk which is itself made up of two Old Norse elements: "Skuli," a personal name, and "thorpe," meaning "settlement." 
The surname Sculthorpe was first found in Norfolk, at Sculthorpe, a parish, in the union of Walsingham, hundred of Gallow.  This parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was recorded as Sculatorpa.
