Stanton Family History

Recorded in a naumber of spellings including Stanton, Stannton, Staniton, Staunton, Steinton, Stinton, and possibly others, this is one of the earliest of all surnames. It is English and locational from any of the places called Stanton, Stainton, Stinton or Staunton, as recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086. However spelt they usually derive from the Olde English pre 7th century words "stan or stein", meaning stone, and "tun", a settlement or village, and would describe a settlement situated on stony ground.
