Origin of the Name Clayton

The Clayton family history was found in the archives. Clayton is a locational name taken various towns and parishes in Counties Staffordshire, Sussex, Yorkshire, and Lancashire in England . This name is of Anglo-Saxon 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 Sewal de Claton, County Hertfordshire, a Hamo de Cleyton, County Buckinghamshire, a William de Cletone, County Salop, and a Henry de Claytone, County Lancashire, who were all recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. In Ireland the name Clayton has been associated with County Cork since the seventeenth century but has since become widespread throughout the four Provinces.
The Clayton 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 Clayton descendants.
