Goldsworthy Family History

This unusual West Country name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and a locational surname deriving from either Galsworthy, in Devonshire, or from the places in the parishes of Crowan and Gwennop, Cornwall, called Goldsworthy. The place in Devonshire is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Galeshore"; the name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "gagol", sweet gale, bog myrtle, with "ora", bank, slope. At a later date, the second element was assimilated to the typical West Country placename ending "-worthy", from the Olde English "worth", enclosure, settlement.
