    Essulf had four sons who were given the second name or surname, Thornhill. In 1100 a law was passed in England that every person must have a second name, here the topographical name derived from the place of birth, Thornhill and Tong was chosen by Essulf. The manor of Shelf, north-east of Halifax was granted to the Thornhill family. This occurred after the 2nd Earl Warrene's [d. 1138] tenure of the Wakefield Manor, for he had been previously granted the Shelf Manor.
