LAWTON Family History

This interesting name is English, and locational in origin. It derives from the villages of Lawton in Cheshire, both being recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as 'Lautune'. There is also a Lawton village in Herefordshire and this is also recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Lautone', although perhaps strangeley this village does not seem to have been the originating source of any surnames. The name derives from two old pre 7th Century English words "hlaw", meaning a low hill or a mound and "tun", a fenced enclosure or settlement, although it is also possible that in some circumstances the meaning could apply to either a burial mound or a tribal meeting place...
