ROUNTREE Family History

Recorded in several forms as shown below, this is a surname of early medieval English origins. It was topographical from residence by a conspicuous rowan tree or perhaps a mountain ash, one growing in an area where such trees were uncommon. The derivation is from the word "rown", which is ultimately from the pre 7th century Old Norse "rogn", with the the Olde English "treow", meaning tree. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognizable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.
