York Genealogy & History

York is a prominent English surnam, from the ancient and former capital city of York. The word itself comes from the ancient Greek eburos, which means a yew tree; it was Latinized to Eboracum and applied to York during the first century of the Roman occupation. Shortly before the turn of the millennium, Vikings captured the city and changed the name to Yorvik, which eventually shortened to its modern form. York family history begins with John de York, who was noted in the Coroner's Rolls of London in 1324. York genealogy includes war hero Albin York, British Admiral Joseph York, and actress Rachel York.
