MATTON Family History

This interesting surname with variant spellings Matten, Mathen, Mattin, Matton, and Mathan, is a diminutive of "Mat, Math", short forms of the medieval English personal name "Matthew", itself coming from the Hebrew male given name "Matityahu" meaning "Gift of God". The surname dates back to the late 13th Century (see below). Further recordings include Matheon Mateon (1327), in the Subsidy Rolls of Cambridgeshire, and Adam Mathin (1379), in the Poll Tax Records of Yorkshire. London Church Records show the marriage of Fortune Mathen to Thomas Harwood on May 29th 1626 at St.
