    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name for a sexton or churchwarden, from Middle English sextein(e) ‘sexton’ (Old French secrestein, medieval Latin sacristanus). The sexton was originally the officer of a church in charge of the sacred vessels and vestments, but later came to denote one who looked after the churchyard and dug graves.

    English: in northern England a variant of Saxton .

    English: possibly a habitational name from Sexton in Ermington (Devon), recorded as Shecoteston in 1329. The placename derives from the family of Richard Sheccoc, recorded at Sexton in 1199, + Middle English toun ‘farmstead, village, settlement’. The origin of Richard Sheccoc's name is uncertain due to confusion between c and t, as seen in the name of one of his descendants, Richard Scheccote, recorded at Sexton in 1333.
