Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire): habitational name from places so named, of which there is one West Yorkshire and another in Suffolk, both probably deriving their name from an Old English personal name Heppa + worð ‘enclosure’. The surname is still found mainly in Yorkshire, so it seems that the first place is the more likely source of the surname.
