English: habitational name principally from Saxton (Yorkshire), but perhaps occasionally from the lost Saxton preserved in Saxon Street in Woodditton (Cambridgeshire). The Yorkshire placename probably derives from the Old Norse personal name Saxi (see Sax 3) + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, though the first element may alternatively be Old English Seaxe ‘the Saxons’ (in the stem-form Seax-) or perhaps Old English seax ‘stone, rock’. The Cambridgeshire placename probably derives from Old English Seaxe (in the stem-form Seax-) + tūn.
