English (West Midlands):
habitational name from Pointon (Lincolnshire), which is recorded as Pochinton in 1086, Poynton (Cheshire), which is recorded as Povinton in 1249, or Poynton (Shropshire), which is recorded as Peventone in 1086, or Povington (Dorset), which is recorded as Povintone in 1086. The Lincolnshire placename probably derives from the Old English personal name Pohha + the Old English connective -ing- + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. The Cheshire placename derives from an Old English personal name Pofa + connective -ing- + tūn. The Shrops and Dorset placenames derive from the Old English personal name Pēofa + connective -ing- + tūn, or from the genitive form of the personal name, Pēofan, + tūn.
alternatively, it may be from Pointhorne, in Croxden (Staffordshire), perhaps a compound of Middle English point ‘spike’ and thorn ‘thorn tree’. The placename is recorded as Pointon in 1775.
