An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The lineage of the name Guyton begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the area of Cheshire that was referred to as the hill of Gaega, Gaega being an Anglo-Saxon personal name. Guyton is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Only recently has spelling become standardized in the English language. As the English language evolved in the Middle Ages, the spelling of names changed also. The name Guyton has undergone many spelling variations, including Gayton, Gaydon, Gaytun, Gaton and others.

First found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
