SALT Family History

This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is an English locational surname from the town of Salt in Staffordshire, recorded as "Selte" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and as "Salt" in the 1167 Pipe Rolls of that county. The name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "selte" meaning a salt-pit. At the beginning of the century there were salt works within two miles of the town. Locational surnames were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace...
