    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Walworth . Perhaps also a habitaitonal name from Wellsworth in Idsworth (Hampshire) or Wallsworth in Sandhurst (Gloucestershire), though medieval evidence that either gave rise to a surname is lacking. Both placenames derive from the Old English personal name Walh (genitive Wales) or possibly Old English walh ‘foreigner, Briton, serf’ (genitive wales) + worth ‘enclosure’.
