    Name Meaning

    English (Yorkshire): habitational name mainly from Skelton in Cumberland, or any of various places called Skelton in Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, and East Yorkshire. The placenames probably all derive from Old English scelf ‘rock, ledge, shelf’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, with initial Sk-, instead of Sh-, due to Scandinavian influence. However, in some cases, the first element may be a lost river name, from Old Norse skjallr ‘resounding’; compare Skelding . This English surname has been established in Queen's County [Laois], Ireland, since the 16th century.
