Tiltion History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Tiltion family


The surname Tiltion was first found in Leicestershire where it first appeared around the middle of the 12th century. The suffix "-ton," meaning town, indicates that the name Tiltion is local in its origin, meaning "Farmstead or village of a man called Tila." Tila is a personal name from Old English. Tilt is a Saxon word meaning "tent."

Tilton is a parish, in the union of Billesdon, partly in the hundred of Gartree, but chiefly in that of East Goscote. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
