Background: The name is derived from the time of the Anglo-Saxons (4th - 10th century) and refers to a fence or hedge(hay) surrounding a farm (tun) - hence 'haytun'. An alternative translation is 'eatun' - as in Ayton - meaning a farm (tun) on an island in a river (ea). One of the earliest recordings of the use of the Hayton surname is when Seliff, the huntsman to the second lord of Allerdale, was granted the manor of Hayton, near Aspatria, Cumbria, sometime after the Norman Conquest of Britain in 1066. Most Hayton surnames tend to originally have come from around the villages of Hayton, nr Aspatria, Cumbria and Hayton, East Yorkshire.

Variations: Hayton, Hay, Hayes, Heiton, de Hayton, Haton, Ayton, de Haitun, Haitun, Haydon.
