Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name from places named Butterworth in Lancashire (near Rochdale) and in West Yorkshire. Both are so named with Old English butere ‘butter’ + worð ‘enclosure’. The surname is recorded from an early date in each of these two places; it probably arose independently in each.
