"ACKROYD"

'The name "Ackroyd"  means a dweller in an oak clearing. It has been said that it is a surname with a single family origin. This family apparently lived in Wadsworth in West Yorkshire.

A document we hold (which has yet to be verified) states that the earliest record of  "Akroyd" (One of many variant spellings) was in 1273. This was the whole name as surnames were rare in those days.'

However Dr. George Redmonds wrote in his book, 'Yorkshire Surnames Series - Part One' (Bradford & District). " John de Aykroide, the constable for Wadsworth in 1381, seems to be the first of the name, but may be identical with the John, son of Richard, taxed there two years earlier." This book and others by Dr. George Redmonds can be obtained online from Amazon. In conjunction with Amazon.co.uk we offer you a fantastic selection of Family History books. Or for a larger selection try: Family History 4 All: Books Select from aprox 13.000 books! Or for a range of Family History Software Click Here.

The following three books by: George Redmonds - GR Books, are an excellent addition to your bookshelf, if you are researching in Yorkshire. Having met George at a recent 'Family History Society' monthly meeting, where he was giving a talk, I was surprised to find that his mother was an 'Ackroyd' (My surname). 'Ackroyd' appears in the 'Halifax & District' edition. Jim, editor. (Prices correct at time of publication on this site)
