I can think of no better place to start than my own name. Beswick is Anglo-Saxon, but -wick is a loan word from Latin, very common in England. Roman forts often had a vicus [pronounced wicus] near them. This was an economic area. When the Romans left the word wicus remained and came to denote an area used for economic purposes, often for sheep or dairy. That wick is a very common place name ending is a sign of the impact of the Roman presence. However, people with wick in their surname are not more likely to be of Roman descent than anyone else in the population.
Furthermore, I live in the district of Stretford, in Greater Manchester, near to Chester Road, and there is Roman influence in these place names. Roman roads were sometimes known as streets. Stretford means Street Ford, where a street, in Latin strada, fords the river Mersey. The street in question is the old Roman road, which runs underneath the long, straight road to Chester. Watling Street is the name of long Roman road which extended from Dover for 276 miles to Wroxeter in the West Midlands
Chester is an English place name ending derived from the Latin castra, military camp. It always denotes a site once occupied by a Roman military unit. Chester, thirty miles from where I live was known as the city of the legions, as it was a legionary base for several hundred years, home of the twentieth legion. Manchester was a mere fort, but its remains have been excavated and can be visited. Variants of the word chester are cester or caster. Examples are Cirencester in Sussex and Lancaster in Lancashire. Furthermore, in South Wales we have the city of Caerleon [ pronounced Carleon. ] This name is composed of the Welsh caer, meaning castle and leon, a word that is a shortened form of legion. City of the Legion, it was the base of the Second Legion. There are Roman remains there, as you will see in the next section. Eboracum is York, home of the sixth legion, and the city is rich in Roman archaeology.
Other place names signify Roman influence. London is a Celtic word, but the Roman name Londinium survived the departure of the Romans, and this is indicative of cultural and ethnic continuity between the Roman period and the subsequent Saxon age. Faversham, in Kent, has a name that includes the Saxon ham [home] with the Latin faber, meaning maker, and is indicative of the survival of a group of smiths from the Roman period into the Saxon age. Nearby, the town of Dover has a name little changed from the Latin Dubris [v and b are phonetically closely related.]
