Welwike Early Origins



The surname Welwike was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Yorkshire at the taking of the Domesday Book census in 1086. The village and Church of Welwick was held at that time by the Archbishop of York and conjecturally the family name is descended from this prelate. In 1337 William de Welwick held the estates.
