SHILLINGTON Family History

This most interesting and unusual surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from Shillington in Bedfordshire; or Chillington in Devon, Somerset and Staffordshire. The former place appeared in the "Diplomatarium anglicum" in 1060 as "Scytlingedune", and as "Sethlindone" in the Domesday Book of 1086. The first element of the Bedfordshire placename seems to be the tribal name "Scytlingas", meaning people of Scytla, Scyttel, a byname from the Olde English pre 7th Century "sciell", resounding; and the Olde English "tun", village, settlement.
