The name Henstridge is a very unusual English surname is locational. It originates from the village of Henstridge in the county of Somerset, being first recorded in the area in the year 1608 as shown below. The name translates literally as the ridge where horses were kept, from the olde English pre 7th century word "hyryyg", a ridge, and the later Anglo-Saxon word "hengest", meaning a horse. The actual meaning though, is open to different interpretations. As "Hengest or Hengist" were popular early personal names, this may give an alternative meaning of a village owned by a man called Hengest.
