It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Walkden are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Walkden include: Walkington, Walkinton, Wallington, Walkingham and others.

First found in Yorkshire where they were Lords of the manor of Walkington from ancient times. William Wallington was Lord of the Castle of Wallington in Northumberland, and carried the same Coat of Arms as Walkington.
