Interesting Facts about Joan Witherspoon

Meaning of Last Name

"witherspoon" family name, ancestry, and history

Origins:

The Witherspoon surname originates in Britain. It is composed of the elements 'wether' and 'spong/spang' which are taken from Middle English. Originally, Witherspoon was a place name meaning 'a narrow strip of land where sheep dwell', however the village has been lost on the maps. The surname is most likely to come from County Durham, North East England as in the 1881 census County Durham had far more Witherspoon's than any other county. In particular, you are 1422 times more likely to find a Witherspoon in the village of Birtley, County Durham than anywhere else in the UK. The name is also found in the Scottish counties of Lanarkshire and Perthshire in particular - hence the links to Scotland. Many Witherspoon's believe they have Scottish ancestry, although the surname is originally English - not from the Gaelic language. Obviously, with the British colonisation of many parts of the world, the name has spread to Australia, United States, New Zealand and Canada etc. and now there are more Witherspoons in the U.S. than in their home country.
