The Thorowgoyd name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Thorowgoyd is derived from the baptismal name Thurgod, an ancient font name. After the Norman Conquest, the Old English naming system gradually dissolved. Old English names became less common and were replaced by popular continental European names. The earliest surnames in England were found shortly after the Norman Conquest and are of Norman French rather than native English origins.

Early Origins of the Thorowgoyd family


The surname Thorowgoyd was first found in Hertfordshire where they were descended from Turgod, "a Domesday [Book] baptismal appellation" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and the name has often been confounded with Toogood.

Migration of the Thorowgoyd family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Thorowgoyd family emigrate to North America: Richard Throughtgood settled in Virginia in 1630; Dan Thoroughgood settled in Virginia in 1635; along with Sara and Thomas, followed by Mary in 1638; and Elin in 1651.
