Caston Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon and Old Scandinavian origin, and is a locational name from places called Cawston in Norfolk and Warwickshire. The placename derives from the Old Scandinavian personal name "Kalfr", plus the Olde English pre 7th Century "tun" meaning enclosure, farm, homestead, hence "Kalfr's tun". The early loss of the "l" in the personal name is due to Norman influence. Cawston in Norfolk is recorded as "Caustuna" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and as "Causton" in the Pipe Rolls of 1159.
