The two places in Sussex, now called 'Woolavington' and 'Barlavington', and recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Levitone' and 'Barleventone' respectively, were once (circa 750) called 'Lafingatun', meaning 'the settlement of Lafa's people', derived from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name 'Lafa', with the suffix 'ing' indicating 'people, family or tribe of', with 'tun', enclosure or settlement.
