Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of three places called Billington, in Lancashire, Staffordshire, and Bedfordshire. The first of these is first recorded in 1196 as Billingduna ‘swordshaped hill’ ( see Bill ); the second is in Domesday Book as Belintone ‘settlement (Old English tūn) of Billa’; the one in Bedfordshire is recorded in 1196 as Billendon, from an Old English personal name Billa+ dūn ‘hill’. The place in Lancashire is the most likely source of the surname.
