The distinguished surname Yarrington was first found in England. The name is derived from "Yarnton," the name of a town in Oxfordshire, and simply means "one from Yarnton."

Yarrington Early Origins



The surname Yarrington was first found in 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.
