Speed Early Origins



The surname Speed was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat. 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 1185 when Godfrey Speed appeared on the Pipe Rolls for that county.
