MILTON Family History

This famous surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name deriving from any one of the numerous places called Milton. Most of these places, with examples in at least fourteen counties, are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Middeltone", and mean "the middle settlement", derived from the Old English pre 7th Century "middel", middle, with "tun", enclosure, settlement. The remainder, a smaller group with examples in Kent, Northamptonshire and Staffordshire, among other counties, mean "the settlement at the mill", from the Old English pre 7th Century "mylen", mill, with "tun" as before. These places are recorded in the Domesday Book variously as "Meletune", "Meletone" and "Miletune"...
