Tewksbury Early Origins



The surname Tewksbury was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. 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 13th century. At the taking of the Domesday Book Tewksbury was a large market town having 2 mills, a fishery, and a salt house. It's ancient name was Tedechsberrie. The Normans built a great Abbey church.
