Thruston Early Origins



The surname Thruston was first found in Suffolk in the parish of Market-Weston. "The seat of the Thruston family is within the parish." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
A very rare surname, we also found Andrew Thurston and John Thryston both listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Suffolk in 1524. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
This latter source claims that the name is a metathesized form of Thurstan.
