Early Origins of the Lutton family

The surname Lutton 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] as Loitone and also as Lintone. One of the first records of the family was John de Luyton, rector of the church of St. Elphin, Warrington, Lancashire in 1343. [2]
