Thorpe Genealogy & History

Thorpe is a locational English name that dates to medieval times in Yorkshire. It is thought that the derivation is from Old Norse/Old Danish thorp or Old English throp, meaning hamlet or farmstead, with many places so named throughout England. Thorpe genealogy is further complicated by the variety of spellings throughout the centuries: Tharp, Thripp, Throup, Thrupp, and Turp. The first name-holder to immigrate to the New World was George Thorpe to Virginia in 1622. The Thorpe family history motto, super antiquas vias, means upon ancient roads. The family crest and coat of arms contain a red lion, signifying fierce courage, and the royal fleur-de-lis.
