English: possibly a habitational name from either of two places named Charton, in Devon and Kent, the latter being the more likely source, to judge by the current distribution of the surname. French (Normandy and Champagne): reduced form of Char(r)eton, denoting a carter, from a derivative of Old French charette ‘cart’.
