Name Meaning

English (Lancashire):

habitational name from Shilvington in Morpeth (Northumberland). The placename probably means something like ‘the farmstead of the people who live at the ledge’, from Old English scelf ‘rock, ledge, shelf’ + the groupname suffix -ingas (genitive -inga-) + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’.

perhaps a habitational name from Shitlington (Yorkshire), from an Old English personal name Scyt(t)el + Old English connective -ing- + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’.
