Origin of the Name Barton

The ancient history of the name Barton was found in the archives. The name Barton is of locational origin. There are twenty six parishes so called in Crockford in England. This name is of Anglo-Saxon English descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a William de la Berton, Wiltshire, a John de la Berton, Kent, and a Reginald de la Berton, Gloucester, who were all recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls' in the year 1273. The Scottish Bartons came from Yorkshire after a contest with Edward III. A Thomas de Bartone of Ayrshire, Scotland, rendered homage in the year 1296. In Ireland the name is on record from the year 1297 when Thomas de Bartun was accepted by the seneschal at Drogheda as surety. The leading family in Ireland are descended from Thomas Barton of Barton Hall, Lancashire, who arrived into Ireland in 1599, and obtained grants of lands in County Fermanagh.
The Barton coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Barton descendants.
