MANCHESTER Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of English locational origin from the city thus called in North West England, formerly part of Lancashire. The placename was recorded as "Mameceaster" in the 923 Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and as "Mamecestre" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and derives from "Mamucio", an ancient British name containing the element "mamma" breast and meaning "breast-shaped hill" plus the old English pre 7th Century "ceaster" a Roman fort, from the Latin "castra" legionary camp. We do not often find many representatives of our large cities as the tendency was to come to them, not to leave them.
