Wilingten Early Origins



The surname Wilingten was first found in Burton, Yorkshire, where early records, including documents from the Burton Chartulary record Nicholas de Wilentona, in 1251. Willington in Derbyshire has an interesting story to tell about the family. "The property at the Domesday Survey belonged partly to the king, and partly to Ralph Fitzhubert. Henry II. gave one of the two manors to Burton Abbey. The other appears to have been given with the church, by the family of Willington, to the prior and convent of Repton." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
