Leuton Early Origins



The surname Leuton was first found in Bedfordshire, at Luton, once home of Luton Castle, a 12th-century castle, a timber motte-and-bailey structure built in 1139 but demolished in 1154. An excavation in 2002, revealed a steep ditch. Today Luton is a large town and unitary authority of Bedfordshire, but in the area Paleolithic encampments (about 250,000 years old) have been found. About the 6th century, it was a Saxon outpost on the River Lea. Luton is recorded in the Domesday Book [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
