THURSBY Family History

Recorded as Thorby, Thorlby, Thoresby, Thoresbie, Thursby, Thirby, Thurby, Thurbie, and others, this is an English surname. It is locational either from Thorlby, a village near Skipton in North Yorkshire, or from one of the several places called Thoresby in the counties of Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire or possibly even from a lost village which might have been called called Thorby or Thurby although we no proven evidence to support such a theory, except the surviving surname itself. Thorlby is recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as Torederebi and means "Thor's homestead", a name for the god of thunder in early mythology, and preserved in the weekday name of Thursday...
