Random Notes No. CCXLII

Arnopp. Originally Harhopp (Hare’s Valley) presumably given to a dweller in such a valley. In some places, it became Arnopp due to local pronunciation.

Bateman. Boatman or servant of Bate. (A shortened form of Bartholomew.)

Bond. From bondsman, meaning peasant farmer.

Gleasure. Corruption of the original name Glazier, meaning a glassblower.

Meiklejohn. A Scottish nickname. If more than one John lived locally, the oldest or biggest was called Meiklejohn to distinguish him from the others.
