FITTON Family HistoryThere are two possible origins of this interesting name. Firstly, it was a common medieval term "fitten" for lying, or deceit, and would have been used as a nickname. Secondly it could be a locational name from Fitton hall in Leverington, Cambridgeshire which probably gets its name from the Old Norse "fit", grassland on the bank of a river and the Old English pre 7th Century tun, a settlement. In St. Margaret's, Lothbury, London one Benjamin Fitton son of George Fitton was christened in 1584. A famous namebearer being Mary Fitton (flourished 1600), maid of honour to Queen Elizabeth.
