CREIGHTON Family HistoryThis is an interesting surname recorded in the spellings of Crichton, Crichten, Crighton, Cryton, and Creighton, is of Scottish and English origin. It is with all spellings locational, either from a place so called near Uttoxeter in Staffordshire, or from the barony of Crichton near Edinburgh, in Scotland. The derivation of Creighton (in Staffordshire) is from the Olde Welsh pre 7th Century "creic", a rock, and "tun", a farm or settlement, thus a place built on a ridge, and it was first recorded in the Red Book of the Exchequor of 1166 as "Crectone", and in the Assize Rolls of 1222 it appears as "Creiton"...
