Members of the Metcalf Family (sometimes written Medcalf or Metcalfe) lived in the community of Pine Mountain since very early years, as well as among the student body and workers at Pine Mountain Settlement School.

The family has a long history with the State of Kentucky which includes Metcalfe County, named for the family. The origin of the family name goes back to England and refers to “mete’ and Old English term for “meat” and “cealf” for “calf.” The name first appears in the North Yorkshire dales in the 12th or 13th century.

See the Metcalf Society for a more extensive history of the English origins of the clan. The Society established in 1980 is one of the largest genealogical study groups in England and boasts that, if you are from Yorkshire, there is a Metcalf somewhere in your history.

Metcalfe County in Kentucky was founded in 1890 and was named for Thomas Metcalfe, Governor of Kentucky from 1828 to 1832.
