The Anglo-Saxon name Cooulton comes from when the family resided in Colton. There are places named Colton in Staffordshire, Norfolk and North Yokshire. Although the Staffordshire origin is more common some families' names are derived from the Norfolk location.

Early Origins of the Cooulton family


The surname Cooulton was first found in Colton or Coulton, located in Staffordshire, North Yorkshire, Norfolk and Cumbria. The places had a variety of listings in the Domesday Book including Coletuna (Norfolk), Coletune (North Yorkshire) and Coltone (Staffordshire.) However, the meaning of the place names were essentially the same: "farmstead of a man called Cola or Koli" having derived from the Old English or Old Scandinavian personal name + tun.

The Cumbria placename was originally listed as Coleton in 1202, but its origins may have been much earlier.

Migration of the Cooulton family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cooulton or a variant listed above: Nicholas Colton who settled in Virginia in 1643; William Colton settled in Virginia in 1774; Thomas Colton settled in Barbados in 1679; Amos, Charles, James, John, Thomas, and William all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1870..
