The Embleton name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in Emberton in Buckinghamshire.

Early Origins of the Embleton family


The surname Embleton was first found in Buckinghamshire at Emberton, a parish, in the union of Newport-Pagnell, hundred of Newport. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The chapelry of Embleton in Durham was an alternate origin of the family. "This place, anciently called Elmdene from its deep hollow glen abounding with elms, gave name to a family that became resident here about the commencement of the 13th century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
And it is here that the first record of the family was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1230 as Roger de Emilton. Almost one hundred years later, Richard de Embeldon was listed in the same area in 1326. Norman de Embleton was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Cumberland in 1332. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
