    Name Meaning

    English (Staffordshire and Warwickshire): habitational name from one or other of the many places so called, such as those in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Northamptonshire, Shropshire, Somerset, Staffordshire, Wiltshire, and Yorkshire. Most of the placenames derive from Old English horh or horu ‘dirt, filth’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, though some may have different origins, including Horton in Gloucestershire, which may derive from Old English heorot ‘hart, stag’ + tūn.
