Early Origins of the Yarrington family
Oxfordshire, where the Yarrington family was anciently seated as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066; the language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. Saxon surnames survived, however, and the family name Yarrington was first referenced in the 13th century when they held lands.
