    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Steventon in Ludford in Shropshire or places similarly named in Berkshire and Hampshire, or Stevington End in Bartlow End (Essex), or Stevington in Bedfordshire, which was recorded as Steventon in 1284. The placenames probably derive from an Old English personal name, Stīfa, or the Old English word styfic ‘tree stump’, + the connective -ing- + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’.
