The Spoone surname is generally thought to have derived from the Middle English word "spoon," which was a "chip," or "splinter" of wood; and as such, was an occupational
name for someone who made wooden roof shingles. It was on after the 14th century, under Scandinavian influence, that the word spoon, began to acquire its modern usage as an eating utensil, but it is certainly possible that the surname may also have been taken on occupationally by someone who made spoons.
Early Origins of the Spoone family
The surname Spoone was first found in Warwickshire
where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, as Lords of the manor, some say well before the Norman Conquest
and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. Other early records include Roger Lesponere, in the Pipe Rolls
in 1179, and a Thomas, Robert le Sponere in the Assize Rolls of Lincolnshire
