Screaton is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Screaton family lived in Nottinghamshire, at the manor of Screveton, from where they took their name.

Screaton Early Origins



The surname Screaton was first found in Nottinghamshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Screveton. The manor was originally Escreventone, which transitionally emerged as Screveton, and was locally pronounced Screeton or Screaton. Conjecturally, this distinguished family are descended from Roger de Bully, the holder of the manor from the Bishop of Bayeux.

Known variations of the Screaton family name include Screeton, Screton, Screaton, Scratten, Scretton, Screveton, Scratton and many more.

Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Screaton family to immigrate North America: Sisley Scratton settled in Virginia in 1649; John Screton settled in Barbados in 1678 with servant.
