The ancestors of the Stainton surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Stainton found in the counties of Cumberland, Durham, Lincolnshire, Lancashire, Westmorland, West Riding of Yorkshire and the North Riding of Yorkshire.

Stainton Early Origins



The surname Stainton was first found in Yorkshire but was a frequent name in the north of England as it was derived from the Old English word "stan" which meant "farmstead on stony ground." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

  • Adam Stainton who settled in Maryland in 1739

Stainton Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Robert Stainton, aged 42, arrived in New York in 1812
  • W G Stainton, who landed in Arkansas in 1888
