Early Origins of the Thornthwaite family
Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Thornthwaite, in the parish of Hampsthwaite in the West Riding. 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 Thornthwaite.
