Benston Family History
Benston Name Meaning
Origin uncertain. This has the form of an English habitational name, and there are places in Shetland and Strathclyde named Benston which could have given rise to the surname; however, the surname is rare in the British Isles. It could perhaps be a variant of Benson 2; alternatively, it may be an Americanized form of an original in some other language.
