An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Mylton comes from when the family resided in Oxfordshire where they were established since early times. The name originally came from the words mill-town and denoted that the town had a mill.

Mylton Early Origins



The surname Mylton was first found in Oxfordshire where the name was derived from the place name Milton of which there are many that still survive today. However, there is strong evidence that the family descended from the Norman family of De Camville who held a baronial estate in the area as the arms of that family and the name Mylton both have the double-headed eagle. The Camville or Campvilles date back to before William the Conqueror. Continuing the investigation further, we found the Camvilles of Milton appear continuously in records after the Domesday Book. For example, Gerard de Camville, Baron of Milton had three sons ( c. 1230). The youngest was probably the ancestor of the Miltons.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Mylton or a variant listed above:
