English (Huntingdonshire): habitational name from one or more of the numerous places called Northorpe, such as Northorpe in Mirfield (Yorkshire), Northorpe in Halton Holegate, Northorpe near Scotton, and Northorpe in Thurlby near Bourne (all in Lincolnshire), Northorpe in Hornsea and a lost Northorpe in Easington near Patrington (both in the East Yorkshire). The placenames derive from Old English or Old Norse north ‘north, northern’ + Old English or Old Norse thorp ‘secondary settlement, dependent farmstead’. This surname is now rare in Britain, Northrop being the more common form.
