My HEATHERINGTON family came from?

This interesting name is of English origin and is a dialectual variant of a locational name from a place in Northumberland called Hetherington. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "haeth", a heath and "tun" a settlement, thus "the farm of the heath". During the Middle Ages, when it was becoming increasingly usual for people to migrate to other areas to seek work, they would often adopt or be given their placename of birth as a means of identification, thus resulting in the wide dispersal of the names.
