Boylston is a habitational name for someone who lived at or near various places by the same name in England. Boyton is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire but as recent as 2001, it had a relatively small population of 179. In late Victorian times, the historic Boyton Manor, next to the Anglican parish church, became the home of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany. Boyton is also a civil parish and village in Cornwall and Suffolk.

Boylston Early Origins



The surname Boylston was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1198 when Richard of Boitona held estates in that shire.
