The present generation of the Troeton family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having 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."

Troeton Early Origins



The surname Troeton 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.

Troeton Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Troeton include Troughton, Trowton, Troton, Trawton, Troeton and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Troeton were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Frederick Troughton who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1844; Isabel Troughton landed in America in 1698; Nicholas Troton settled in Virginia in 1638..
