Rushton Early Origins



The surname Rushton was first found in Northamptonshire at Rushton, a small village and civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Risetone. The reference lists that it comprised three very small settlements: Barford, which had only seven inhabitants; Glendon, home of Glendon Hall and had fourteen inhabitants; and finally Rushton St. Peter, which included Rushton Hall and Rushton All Saints with a population of forty-five. Rushton Hall has gone through many changes since the first record but today is a luxury hotel. This was the ancestral home of the Tresham family from 1438. The place name Rushton is generally believed to mean "farmstead where rushes grow" from the Old English words rysc + tun. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Rushton is also a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West. However, this village is rather recent as the first recorded population statistic was in the 1881 census. Finally Rushton Spencer is located in Staffordshire an early possession of the Spencer family.
