Name Meaning

English (Lancashire): habitational name from Unsworth (Lancashire), recorded as Hundeswrth in 1291. This name was easily confused with Hunsworth in Yorkshire, since they shared the same etymology, ‘Hund's enclosure or settlement’ (from the Old English personal name Hund ‘dog’ + Old English worth ‘enclosure’).
