The name Quarinton was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Quarinton family lived in Lancashire, at Warrington, a borough, markettown, and parish, and the head of a union, in the hundred of West Derby. It was originally a British town, and on the invasion of the Romans under Agricola in the year 79, converted into a Roman station. The Saxons named the place Weringtun, from the Saxon Wśring, a fortification, and tun, a town. It later formed part of the demesne of Edward the Confessor and became head of a deanery, of which the jurisdiction still remains. In Domesday Book it is listed under the name of Wallintun; and in the reign of Edward I was in the possession of William le Boteler, who obtained for it the grant of a market, and other privileges.

Quarinton Early Origins



The surname Quarinton was first found in Lancashire where the manor was granted to Roger de Poitou, one of William the Conqueror's favorite Barons, who held all the lands from the Ribble to the Mersey from 1066. Roger gave Warrington to Paganus de Vilars, a Norman Lord of Villieres le Sec in Calvados, Normandy. His descendants were the Lords of Warrington until 1586 and it is from the junior lines that the name Warrington is derived.

Quarinton Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Warrington, Warrinton and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Quarinton or a variant listed above: Robert Warrington who settled in St. Christopher in 1635; Edward and Mary Warrington settled in Jamaica in 1686; William Warrington settled in Barbados in 1693.
