Terringham Early Origins



The surname Terringham was first found in Buckinghamshire. The family claim descendancy from a tenant of the lands of Tyringham, held by Ansketel, a Norman Baron of Tebotevilla in Normandy, under-tenant of the Bishop of Coutance who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. At that time, it was listed as Tellingham but by 1130, the name was changed to Tringeham. The place name literally means "homestead of river-meadow of the family or followers of a man called Tira."
