SKERRETT Family History

This interesting surname has two distinct possible sources. Firstly, the surname may be a locational name from Skirwith in Cumberland, which was recorded as "Skirewit" in the 1205 Feet of Fines, and derives from a Scandinavianized form of the Olde English pre 7th Century "scirwudu", composed of the elements "scir", shire, district, and "wudu", wood; hence, "wood belonging to the shire". The Old Scandinavian "vithr" is equivalent to the Olde English "wudu". Skirwith was formerly pronounced Skerritt.
