Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of a number of places called Alderton. Those in Suffolk and Shropshire (Alretuna in Domesday Book) are named with Old English alor + tūn, meaning ‘the settlement by the alders’. Those in Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, and Wiltshire are named with the Old English personal name Ealdhere, meaning ‘settlement associated with Ealdhere’. The one in Essex contains a different personal name, probably the woman's name Æthelwaru. In England, the surname is most common in East Anglia, making the places in Suffolk and Essex the most likely sources.
