MITTEN Family History

Recorded in several forms including: Mitten, Mitton, Mithon, Mithun, Mitham and Mytton, this is an English locational surname. It orginates from any one of the various villages called Mitton or Mytton, of which there are a number of examples throughout the country. The name means 'The place in the Middle' from the Olde Engish pre 7th century 'mydd-tun'. This would have been a settlement, with most likely an inn, between two larger villages or towns, and where travellers may have been expected to rest.
