SELF Family History

This interesting and unusual name with variant spelling Selfe, may derive from two possible sources. Firstly it may derive from the Old English personal name "Saewulf", composed of the elements "Soe", sea and "wulf", wolf, hence "seawolf". The name may also be of English locational origin from either "Shelf", in Yorkshire, recorded "Scelf" in the Domesday Book of 1086 or "Shelve", in Shropshire, recorded "Schelfe" in 1180, both coming from the Old English "scylf", meaning hill or ledge. The personal name was recorded in the Domesday Book as "Sainlfus", "Saulf", etc.
