When the ancestors of the Turton family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Yorkshire, at Treeton.

Turton Early Origins



The surname Turton was first found in Yorkshire where Richard of Treeton (Turton) held that village consisting of a church and a mill from the Count of Mortain at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book.

Turton Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Turton has been recorded under many different variations, including Turton, Treeton, Treton and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Turtons were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
