Name Meaning

English (Leicestershire): habitational name, possibly from either of two places called Tollerton, in Nottinghamshire and North Yorkshire. The first is named from the Old Norse personal name Thorleifr + Old English tūn ‘settlement’, ‘enclosure’; the second is from Old English tolnere ‘tax gatherers’ + tūn.
