Eshington History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Eshington family

The surname Eshington was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Dissington in that shire.

"The persons who are first named in the records as connected with the property here, are the Morwicks, Lumleys, and Fitzhughs; the family of Essendon (the modern Ashington) are mentioned as lords of the manor at the close of the 13th century."
