About the Poulton surname

The surname Poulton was probably given to individuals who came from the one of the many villages in Britain that are named Poulton. The word is simply the combining of the two Old English words Pol and Tun meaning Pool and Settlement or Enclosure. ie 'Settlement by the pool'. The 'ton' at the end of the name may signify whether it is a Saxon or Norman word.
