Wheaton Family HistoryThis unusual surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name either from Wheaton-Aston, a village north west of Brewood in Staffordshire, or from any of the various places in the north of England called Weeton or Wetton. Wheaton-Aston, recorded as "Wetenaston" in the 1248 "Inquisitions post mortem", is believed to have as its initial element "wheten", an adjective from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hwaete", wheat, a derivative of "hwit", white, because of its use in making flour, with "tun", enclosure, paddock, farmstead. Weeton in Lancashire, and in the East and West Ridings of Yorkshire, recorded variously as "Widetun" and "Witheton" in the Domesday Book of 1086 for the above counties, all share the same meaning and derivation, that is, the Olde English "withig", willows, and "tun" (as before)...
