An ancient sea=port and market-town, Weymouth and Melcombe-Regis, both towns are on opposite sides of the harbour. "Weymouth, which derives its name from its situation at the mouth of the river Wey, is the more ancient, and was probably known to the Romans, as in the immediate neighbourhood there are evident traces of a vicinal way. It is also noticed in the Norman survey, with several other places, under the common name of Wai, or Waia, among which it. is clearly identified by the mention of the salterns exclusively belonging to it."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

"This surname is derived from a geographical locality. 'of Weymouth,' a seaport and market-town in Dorset." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
