The surname Endertom was first found in Lancashire from very ancient times, they being from the town of Anderton in that county, located north of Ince on the coast north of Liverpool.

One of the more famous branches held Euxton Hall at Euxton in Lancashire. "Over the portal, and also on two old chimneypieces in the house, are to be seen the arms of the Molyneuxs and Andertons quartered; William Anderton, Esq., having married Mary, daughter of the fifth viscount Molyneux. The ceilings of the entrance-hall and staircase, richly ornamented by Concillio, are in good preservation, and the mansion has been considerably altered and enlarged by William Ince Anderton, Esq., the present possessor."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Endertom were among those contributors: John Anderton, who settled in Virginia in 1651; George Anderton, who settled in Barbados in 1667; John Anderton, who settled in Nevis in 1663; Mary Anderton, who settled in Maryland in 1690.
