    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in East Yorkshire named Boynton, from the Old English personal name Bōfa + the connective particle -ing- denoting association + tūn ‘settlement’. Alternatively, the name may have arisen from Boyton in Wiltshire (recorded in Domesday Book as Boientone) or from Boyington Court in Kent (recorded in 1207 as Bointon), both of which are named with the Old English personal name Boia + tūn ‘settlement’.

    History: John Boynton emigrated from England to Salem, MA, 1638.
