I was surprised to read that Derwyn is an English name, since in 50 years of living in England, I have never once heard the name in an English context. I have known of Welsh people and Welsh places with that name, and when it occurs in England it is in association with a Welsh surname. Could you tell me where and when the name first occurs in English or Teutonic records? Many thanks.
