TROUT Family History

On the face of it, this interesting English medieval surname is an occupational nickname for a man who either operated a trout farm, all monasteries and most major houses would have had a designated trout lake, or one who was a renowned trout fisherman. However it is also possibly locational from any or all of the villages which include Trout in the name. The surviving examples are Trout Beck (Trout stream) of which there are two villages in Cumbria and Northumberland, and Troutsdale (Trout valley) in North Yorkshire.
