Early Origins of the Rightington family


The surname Rightington was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wrightenton. 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 at Wrightington.
