Paxon Early Origins



The surname Paxon was first found in the ancient county of Berwickshire, now an administrative area of the Scottish Borders region, home of Paxton House, a historic house built between 1758 and 1766. This was the former seat of the Paxton family and is now open to the public as a Partner Gallery of the National Galleries of Scotland. Great Paxton and Little Paxton are villages in the ancient county of Huntingdonshire, now part of Cambridgeshire. Both villages have kept relatively small over the years, but trace back to the Domesday Book where they were listed as Pachstone and literally meant "farmstead of a man called Paecc" from the Old English personal name + tun.
