PAXTON Family HistoryThis is a locational surname recorded in the spellings of Paxton and the rare dialectal Pexton. It originates from the village of Paxton in Huntingdon,a place first recorded as Pachstone in the 1086 Domesday Book, and later in 1163 as Paxton Magna. The name derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th century, and probably describes a man called "Pacca" who lived at his farm (ton). There is an alternative suggestion that the name may derive from the words "poecces tun" or peaceful farm, and either are logical and possible.
