Story Family HistoryThis interesting surname derives from the Old Norse personal byname "Stori", a derivative of "Storr" meaning big or large. The forenames Stori and Estori (without surname) are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1066. Later, the name is found in the Northern English counties, especially Yorkshire, Reginaldus filius (son of) Story, the Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire (1219). The surname from this source is first recorded towards the middle of the 13th Century. Other spellings of the name are Stori (1281), with Storre and Staury, the 1379 Poll Tax Returns Records of Yorkshire.
