LAYTON Family History

This interesting surname is of Olde English locational origin, and is one of a wide range of dialectal spellings. It derives originally from one of the various places called Layton, Leighton and Leyton. These include Layton, east of Blackpool in Lancashire, recorded as 'Latun' in the Domesday Book of 1086, and East and West Layton in the North Riding of Yorkshire, Leyton in Essex etc. The former place was so called from the Old English pre 7th Century "lad", a water-course or conduit, plus "tun", a settlement, homestead, or in medieval times - a town.
