Usually, the lifestyles of 2 or 3 replacement names for a similar land will demonstrate the time intensity of its heritage. therefore ‘Kearton or Feetham Cow Pasture’ (it is often ‘or’ instead of ‘and’) refers to a payment with an English identify and a close-by cost with a Norse identify. Likewise, ‘the manor of Healaugh alias Reeth alias Swaledale’ refers, respectively, to a) the identify of the feudal manor based c. 1100; b) the identify of the ‘vill’ pointed out in Domesday publication in 1086, which used to be the outdated English identify of crucial centre of agrarian creation, into whose wooden pasture sector Healaugh used to be inserted; and c) the Norse identify for the realm later taken over by means of the feudal manor. within the 12th century we discover the medieval surnames ‘de Swale’ and ‘de Swaledale’. The Norse had obviously renamed an English polity, which have been named after the river. humans, polity and valley-based people territory took an identical river identify, as used to be very common in early ‘English’ background. the 2 surnames commemorate this hybrid background. Swale is an English identify, that means ‘the torrential (river)’, that's a correct description of the behaviour of the river in query. So we discover within the archaeology of Swaledale names a strategy with which we've got familiarize yourself from archaeologists’ experiences of ceremonial monuments: the recent is grafted onto the outdated. As i've got already mentioned, medieval Swaledale had a comparatively advanced background of immigration. it'd be fascinating to determine no matter if there have been ameliorations among ‘English’ and ‘Norse’ methods to land occupancy. at the moment, all that may be acknowledged in this query is that during the world the place Norse names are foremost, in the direction of the pinnacle of the dale, conventional surnames have been patronymics—Alderson, Hodgson, Clarkson, and so forth. , and there have been outlying grazing zones, saetr, which frequently took their names from individuals—Ravenseat from Hrafn, Gunnersett (now Gunnerside) from Gunnar, etc. extra east, surnames tended to return from places—Harker from Herthay (now Harkerside), Kearton, uncooked (from Low Row, previously The Wra), and so forth. In different phrases, the ‘English’ culture, at any price within the later center a long time, used to be approximately belonging to a spot, whereas the ‘Norse’ culture was once extra approximately belonging to a relations. This recollects the vintage examine by way of Cole and Wolf (1974) approximately contrasting traditions of inheritance and attitudes to land-holding in neighbouring north 70 ANDREW FLEMING Italian groups. however the Swaledale state of affairs might be much less a question of ethnicity than of inhabitants density and immigration heritage. If the ‘English’ region had a posh immigration background (relating to lead-mining? ) and fairly a dense inhabitants (which may be advised by means of its quite huge zone of overdue medieval and Romano-British arable land), land claims in accordance with township occupancy could have been less complicated or normal than these in response to genuine or fictive kinship hyperlinks. additional west, in a space wooded adequate within the later heart a long time to be exact a wooded area (that is, a looking reserve), family relationships mediated via exchanges of cattle can have been extra vital than adherence to heavily outlined staff territories.
