    Name Meaning

    1 English: locative name; according to Redmonds, Dictionary of Yorks Surnames , the modern Yorks and Durham name is probably not from the name in (2) but a metathesized variant of Threlkeld . The connection is unambiguous in Lancelot Threlkelde, 1472 in Yorks Deeds (Londesborough, ER Yorks), and Christopher Thirkylde, 1556, Elizabeth Therkall, 1608 in York Registry Wills (Goodmanham, ER Yorks). Later examples include Thomas Thirkell, 1624, Thomasine Threlkeld, 1673 in IGI (Brancepeth, Durham); John Thirkeld, 1741, Dorothy Threlkeld, 1755 in IGI (Morpeth, Northumb); John Threlkeld, 1776, James Thirkell, 1822 in IGI (Kirkby Fleetham, NR Yorks).2 English: relationship name from the Middle English personal name T(h)irkill, T(h)urkill (Old Scandinavian Þorkell, Thorkil, Thurkil, a contracted form of Þorketill). Compare Thirkettle . If the NR Yorks family name, cited in several examples below, survived into the modern period, it will have been confused with and absorbed by (1).
