Perreton Early Origins



The surname Perreton was first found in Staffordshire at Perton, a large village and civil parish which has derived its name from 'Pear Town,' referring the a unique pear which grows in the area. The original manor was held by Edward the Confessor and then by the Abbot of Westminster. In turn, the abbey held Perton manor until 1162 when it was granted to Lord William Perton. The surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Perton, a steward of Westminster Abbey who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
