Hampton Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from any of the various places throughout the midland counties of England thus called, for example in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Warwickshire. Recorded variously as "Hantune", "Hantone", "Hamntone" and "Hantun" n the Domesday Book of 1086 for the above counties, all the places share the final Olde English pre 7th Century element "tun", enclosure, settlement but the first is variously the Olde English "ham", homestead, "hamm", water meadow, or "hean" from "hea", high.
