Longworth Family History

This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a lcoational surname deriving from any one of the place called "Longworth" in Berkshire, Herefordshire, and Lancashire. The places in Berkshire and Lancashire are recorded as "Langwrth" in 1291 and as "Langeworthe" in circa 1210 repectively, and both share the same meaning and derivation, which is "the long enclosure, settlement", derived from the Old English pre 7th Century "lang, long", long, with "worth", enclosure, settlement often used in the sense of a subsidiary settlement dependent on a main village.
