Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Buckinghamshire and Somerset. The former was earlier Rockholt, and was so named from Old English hrōc ‘rook’ (perhaps a byname) + holt ‘wood’. The second element of the Somerset place is probably (and more predictably) Old English well(a) ‘spring’, ‘stream’ ( see Well ).
