Theakstone Early Origins



The surname Theakstone was first found in North Yorkshire at Theakston, a village and civil parish in the Hambleton district which is sometimes spelt Theakstone. Relatively small over the years, the village dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Eston. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
Later in 1157, the village was named Thekeston and probably meant "farmstead or village of a man called Theodec," from the Old English personal name + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the village and lands of Theakston, held by Robert, Count Alan's man, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.
