TRENT Family History

This interesting name is one of the most ancient surnames in Britain, being of British, pre-Roman, origin. In most cases the modern surname is from a topographical name for someone who lived on the banks of any of the several rivers named "Trent", in Staffordshire, Derbyshire, and Dorset, for instance. The river name is recorded as early as 115 - 117 by Tacitus as "Trisantona", as "Treenta" and "Treanta" in the Venerable Bede's "Historia Ecclesiastica", and as "Trente" in the Domesday Book of 1086.
