NORTHOVER Family History

This name is of English locational origin, from the place called 'Northover' in Somerset. The placename is first recorded as 'Nordoure' in the 1242. The meaning of the name is 'Northern bank' from the old English pre 7th century 'north' and 'ofer', meaning, in this instance, 'river bank'. It can also mean a slope of ridge. 'Northover' is on the northern bank of the river Yeo locational names such as this were spread around the country when the former inhabitants of the place moved to live or work in another area, and were easily distinguished as, for example, 'Homines de Northowere' (1292, London).
