The surname Wetherholt was first found in Cumberland (now called Cumbria) as Wetheral, a village and civil parish that dates back to c. 1100 when it was first listed as Wetherhala. The place name literally means "nook of land where wether-sheep are kept," from the Old English words "wether" + "halh."  One of the first records of the name was found here with Richard de Wederhal who was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Cumberland in 1332. William Wethereld, Wetherald, Wetherold was listed in Suffolk (1429-1433).  Hugh de Wederhale was listed in Cumberland during the reign of Edward I., and Adam de Wederhal, horner was listed during the reign of Edward II., as a Freeman of York.
