Partington


Partington
Recorded as Partinton, Partington, Partyngton, and the transposed spelling of Partleton, this is an English surname. It is of locational origin from Partington, a village in the county of Cheshire. The place name derives from the Olde English pre 7th century personal name 'Peart' of uncertain meaning, and 'tun' which describes a 'place'. This could be a single farm or a small hamlet owned by a person called Peart. The place name and the surname is first recorded as Partinton in the county rolls of the year 1260, whilst the surname followed on shortly afterwards. Locational surnames were those given either to the local lord of the manor and his descendants, as may well be the case here, or to people who had left their original homes and moved elsewhere. These strangers particularly if they had no specifi trade, were often best identifuied by the name of their birthplace. Early recordings include Hugh de Partyngton in the Assize Court Rolls of Lancashire in 1401, Adam Partington in the Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire in 1541, and far away in London, Thomas Partleton who married Hannah Dunson at St James Westminster, on June 2nd 1759. The first recorded spelling of the family name is possibly that of Henry de Partinton. This was dated 1260, in the Assize Court Rolls of Cheshire. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop," often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
