Early Origins of the Wablethorp family


The surname Wablethorp was first found in Lincolnshire at Mablethorpe, a parish, in the union of Louth, Marsh division of the hundred of Calceworth. "This place is supposed to have obtained its name from the great number of maple-trees with which it formerly abounded, and the stumps of which are still to be seen at low water." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Another source claims that the place name derives its name from the Old German personal name + the Viking word "thorp" and literally meant "outlying farmstead of a man called Malbert." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
The place name dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was first listed as Malbertorp. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
