An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The origins of the Pixton surname are uncertain, but may come from an Old English personal name "Picstan," derived from the Old English terms "pi-c," meaning "point," and "stan," meaning "stone."

Pixton Early Origins



The surname Pixton was first found in Norfolk 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 year 1209 where Richard Pixton held estates in that shire.
