THRUXTON
The first element is a man's name of Scandinavian origin. Since there is a suspicion (VCH IV: 387) that this is one of the old 'Anne' manors registered in Domesday Book, the name may be post-Domesday Book in origin (cf MONXTON SARSON), and the name will then be a fully anglicized version of the Scandinavian 'Thorkil'. No tenant of this name is known, however. The attrition of the name can be followed in the series of forms cited. It had clearly reached the modern pronunciation, or nearly so, by the mid 15th century.
