Are there English surnames that begin with the article "The"?

(For example "Therock" or even with separate words like "The Rock".)

I was wondering this because in my language (Italian) there are many.

  • Not really, and certainly none that start with the definite article. There are Thebe, Thelwall, Theobald, Theobold, and Thexton in my telephone directory. – Mick Nov 21 '17 at 17:08
  • in English, these are epithets rather than family names. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 21 '17 at 21:52
