NATHAN Family History

This interesting and unusual surname has two distinct possible sources, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly, Nathan may be of Anglo-Saxon origin, and a locational name from any of the various places in the west of England which have as their component elements the Olde English pre 7th Century "neat", ox, cattle, and "tun", farm, enclosure. These places include: Natton, a hamlet east of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, recorded as "Natone" in the Domesday Book of 1086; Netton at Durnford in Wiltshire, appearing as "Netetun" in the 1242 Feet of Fines for Wiltshire; and Notton in Wiltshire and Dorset, both recorded as "Natton" and "Netton" in the Feet of Fines for the respective counties, dated 1345 to 1350.
