Therseby Early Origins



The surname Therseby was first found in Cumberland, the name derives from Gospatrick, Lord of Thoresby, from whom was descended Thomas Thoresby of Braithwaite in Cumberland. The village named Thursby is still there today and dates back to 1165 when it was recorded as Thoresby. The name is generally thought to have been derived from the personal name Thorir, and in the case of the village, would have meant "farmstead or village of a man called Thorir."[1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Alternatively, the name could have been derived from "North and South Thoresby, parishes in Lincolnshire. The family claim Saxon origin, being derived from Gospatrick, lord of Thoresby, who was living at the time of the Conquest. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
