The name Trollope is derived from the place-name Troughburn, in Northumberland. Troughburn was originally Trolhop, meaning (in Norse) Troll Valley, and the earliest recorded use is John Andrew Trolope (1427-1461) who lived in Thornlaw, Co Durham
Another theory is that the name is of Norman origin, and is recorded in the Domesday Book as occurring in Lincolnshire .
