Fish Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Middle English (1200 - 1500) "fische" or "fish", itself coming from the Olde English pre 7th century "fisc" meaning a fish. "Fisc" occurs as a personal name in the Domesday Book for Norfolk of 1086. The surname is first recorded at the beginning of the 13th Century (see below), and it is a metonymic occupational name for a catcher or seller of fish. Job descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer, and later became hereditary.
