Bynames Found in the 1296 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Rutland, England
by Karen Larsdatter (Karen Harris)
Below are the bynames that were likely patronyms (that is, the individual's byname is some indication of the name or occupation of his or her parent's name). The parent's name to which the byname likely refers is indicated in boldface, and the related patronymic bynames are sorted in order by frequency below the parent's name.
Latinized PatronymsThe Latin patronyms appear with about the same frequency as the English patronyms (filius means "son of," and filia means "daughter of") and at this date are likely to have been literal, rather than inherited. See The Latinization of Names in the Middle Ages for information on the use of "Latinized" names.
Most often, only the parent's first name appears in the byname, but in some cases, there are complex patronyms -- a parent's given name and byname appear in the child's patronymic byname. Note that metronymics (where the mother's name appears in the child's byname) appear with an unusually high degree of frequency in these records.
An asterisk (*) indicates that the parent's given name indicated in the patronym does not otherwise appear as a given name in the 1296 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Rutland, and the name supplied below is a generic form or spelling for the parent's name.
Patronyms based on the parent's occupation are also found:
Here are the ones that I have not been able to decipher yet.

Vernacular Patronymic Bynames
