Durham Genealogy & History

Durham is a locational English surname, taken primarily from the northeastern English city of Durham, which comes from the Old English "dun", meaning hill, and Old Norse "holm", which means an island, or raised land partially bounded by streams. Durham family history enters the records with Osbert de Dunelm, enrolled in the Pipe Rolls of London in 1163. Over the next few decades, the pronunciation and spelling shifted to Durham. Durham genealogy boasts several renowned persons, such as British Admiral Philip Durham, sports radio announcer Woody Durham, and North Carolina city namesake physician Bartlett Durham.
