Early Origins of the Addlington family


The surname Addlington was first found in Lancashire at Adlington, a small town and civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Eduluintune. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Adlington was part of the Penwortham barony granted to Randle de Marsey and later held by the Ferrers. The place name literally means "estate associated with a man called Eadwulf," from the Old English personal name + "ing" + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
