Name Meaning

Scottish and English: habitational name from any of the numerous places so called. Most are from Old English ēast ‘east’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’; examples in Devon and the Isle of Wight get their names from the Old English phrase beēastan tūne ‘(place) to the east of the settlement’. Another in Devon gets its first element from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Ælfrīc (composed of the elements ælf ‘elf’ + rīc ‘power’) or Aðelrīc (composed of the elements aðel ‘noble’ + rīc ‘power’). One in Essex is from Old English ēg ‘island’+ stān(as) ‘stone(s)’. Finally Easton Neston in Northamptonshire gets its name from Old English Ēadstānestūn ‘settlement of Ēadstān’, a personal name composed of the elements ēad ‘prosperity’, ‘riches’ + stān ‘stone’.
