    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of the places in Northumberland (Paston in Kirknewton) or Huntingdonshire (Paxton). The former probably derives from an Old English personal name Pælloc + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. The placename Paxton in Huntingdonshire is probably from Old English pearroc ‘enclosure, paddock’, or perhaps from an Old English personal name Pæcc + tūn.
