Description Metcalf Genealogy de Isaac Stevens Metcalf:

Excerpt from Metcalf Genealogy There has been much speculation about the origin of the name Metcalf. The original seat of the family was in the North and Northwest part of Yorkshire, in England. The name is found in the old records spelled variously: Metkalff, Medcalffe, Mydcalfe, Medcalf, Mede calfe, Meitcalve, Medecafe, Metecalfe, and many others. The name is still a very common one in Yorkshire, where it was, and is yet sometimes pronounced "Mecca." The traditions are that the early Metcalfs were as a race unusually large, strong men. There is a familiar story of the strong-armed hero who twisted the neck of a ferocious bull, and reported that he "Met a calf over there," and so was called the Man who Meta Calf, or the Metcalf. In later times, Rev. B. E. Metcalf, Rector of Ferrybridge, Yorkshire, writes that he knew in Mukar, Craven, Yorkshire, eight families of Metcalfs, one a father and seven sons, and all very large men, over six feet tall. Craven is an old Metcalf district in Yorkshire. Whittaker's "History of Craven" derives the name Metcalf from the old Saxon "Mechalgh," halgh meaning a tract of land and Mechalgh, the Men of Mee's land. Another derivation is perhaps more probable. There are in Craven, twelve miles southeast of Dent, three hills, or a small mountain with three peaks, now called the Pennegent hills, but long known as the Three Calves.
