DORTON Family History

This is an English locational surname. It originates from the village of Dorton, a parish in the County of Buckinghamshire. The population of this village in 1960 was given as only one hundred and thirty five. The meaning of the village name and hence the later surname, is probably 'the settlement where deer were kept', from the pre 7th century Olde English 'deor-tun'. Another possibility is the Olde English 'dor-tun', which translates as 'the settlement with a door'. This clearly does not mean a door as such.
