Whiteway Early Origins



The surname Whiteway was first found in Dorset, where Whiteway was and ancient hundred that included the parishes of Cheselbourne, Hilton, Ibberton, Melcombe Horsey, Milton Abbas, Stoke Wake and Woolland.

Another source claims the name is from neighboring Devon: "The Whiteways or Whiteaways bear an ancient Devonshire name. John de Wyteweye, of the Teignbridge hundred in the reign of Edward I., is referred to in the Hundred Rolls. An ancient estate in Kingsteignton, near Chudleigh, is called Whiteway, and a family of Whiteway resided in Chudleigh in the 16th and 17th centuries. The name was established in Ashburton in the 16th century, Whytewaye being the name of Ashburton churchwardens in 1539 and 1578. The name is still represented in Chudleigh and Ashburton."

Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.

Another source agrees that the name is from "Whiteway House, Whiteway Barton (Devon) where the name was Whythaweye in 1335." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
