The Peyto surname is a habitational name for someone from Poitou. This French region was Peitow in Anglo-Norman French.

Early Origins of the Peyto family


The surname Peyto was first found in Warwickshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire at Chesterton.
