BOLTON Family History

This surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from any of the places so called, for example those in Cumbria, Lancashire, Northumberland, Westmorland, and in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Recorded variously as "Bodeltun", and "Bodeltone" in the Domesday Book of 1086 for the above counties, the name, in all cases, derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bothl", "botl", dwelling house, hall, with the Olde English "tun", enclosure, settlement. Locational names were originally given to the Lord of the Manor, or as a means of identification to those who left their place of origin to seek work or settle elsewhere...
