The ancestors of the name Trarton date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Trarton family lived in Troughton, a small estate in the county of Lancashire. It is now known as Troughton Hall. The surname is derived from the Old English elements trog, which means trough or hollow, and tun, which means enclosure or settlement. The surname as a whole means "settlement in the valley."

Trarton Early Origins



The surname Trarton was first found in Buckinghamshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times. The family were Lords of the Manor of Great Lindford from about the 14th century. In the 17th century the main stem of the family name branched north to Lancashire where they acquired Leach Hall on the lands of Overton.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Trarton or a variant listed above: Frederick Troughton who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1844; Isabel Troughton landed in America in 1698; Nicholas Troton settled in Virginia in 1638..
