The name Nettleton belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in either of the places called Nettleton in Lincolnshire and Wiltshire, or near any enclosure where nettles grew. The surname Nettleton belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Nettleton Early Origins



The surname Nettleton was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Nettleton some say from the time of the Norman Conquest by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Nettleton include Nettleton, Nettletown, Nettletone, Netleton and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Nettleton were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
