Name Meaning

English (Somerset): habitational name apparently from Summerhayes in Upottery (Devon), which probably means ‘enclosure of a person named Summer’, from the surname Summer + Middle English heie ‘enclosure’ (genitive heies). Place-names of this type, with the name of a person + -hayes, are found throughout Devon.
