Name Meaning

English: habitational name from either of two places called Walworth, in Greater London and County Durham, both named with Old English w(e)alh ‘Briton’, genitive plural wala ( see Wallace ) + worð ‘enclosure’. The present-day concentration of the name in Yorkshire suggests the latter is the more likely source. Compare Wallwork .
