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." It is likely that the original bearer of this name was a native of this parish.

Early Origins of the Sculthorpe family


The surname Sculthorpe was first found in Norfolk, where the parish of Sculthorpe is located. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, the progenitor of the name Sculthorpe may have been a native of the parish of Sculthorpe who had settled in a different city.
