Harston Family History
Harston Name Meaning
English (Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire): habitational name from Harston in Leicestershire from Old English hār ‘gray; boundary’ + stān ‘stone’. Some bearers may take their name from Harston in Cambridgeshire but it is unclear if this name has survived to the present day. The placename probably derives from an Old English personal name Herel (genitive Herles) + Old English tūn ‘farmstead estate’.
