Meaning 'of Newton', a locational name found in many parishes and towns in England. It is found in every county in England and Scotland. This name is of Anglo-Celtic origin and is popular throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above islands. Examples of such are a Gunnora de Neutone, County Suffolk, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a Willemus de Neweton, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. A Thomas Newton was baptised in Saint Peter, Cornhill, in the year 1683. In Scotland the first three persons of the name derived it from the old parish of Newton in Midlothian, and  James de Neutone rendered homage there in 1296. In Ireland the name is found throughout the four provinces being introduced there from Scotland and England centuries ago.
