The Wort surname was a habitational name, taken on from any of various places named Worth. The place names in turn come from the Old English "worš," meaning "enclosure," or "settlement."

Wort Early Origins



The surname Wort was first found in Devon at Washfield, a parish, in the union of Tiverton, hundred of West Budleigh. "The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £19. 7. 6., and in the gift of J. Francis Worth, Esq. The church contains an old oak screen, which has been painted white; and a curious monument with brasses to the family of Worth." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
