The Death surname in historical dictionaries

Patronymica Britannica (1860)

DEATH. " Death" was a common character in the medieval mystei-ies or miracle plays : but this surname is probably derived from a local source. Aeth is a place in Flanders, and the family of Deatli or D'Aeth of Knowlton, baronets, are asserted to have come from that locality. See IBurke's Ext, Baronetage.
