MOORHOUSE Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is locational from places so called in Lincolnshire, Cumbria, Nottinghamshire and the West Riding of Yorkshire. The placenames are derived from the Old English pre 7th century elements "mor", marsh, fen, and "hus", house, and mean the "house on the marsh". Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace. The name could also be topographical for someone who lived in a house on the marsh.
