Eytone Early Origins



The surname Eytone was first found in Shropshire at Eyton where "this family can lay claim to great antiquity, being certainly resident at Eyton on the Weald Moors as early as the reigns of Henry I. and II. They were in some way connected with the Pantulfs, Barons of Wem, who were Lords of Eyton at the period of the Domesday Survey." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
Today Eyton is known as Eyton upon the Weald Moors and dates back to the aforementioned Domesday Book of 1086 where it was originally listed as Etone. By 1344, the local was known as "Eyton super le Wildmore" and literally meant "farmstead on dry ground in marsh, or on well-watered land," from the Old English words "eg" + "tun." The affix means "in the wild moorland," from the Old English "wilde" + "mor." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
