Henton Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place so called, probably either the one in Oxfordshire, which is named from Old English hean, the weak dative case of heah ‘high’ (originally used after a preposition and article), + Old English tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, or the one in Somerset, which is from Old English henn ‘hen’ (perhaps a byname) + tun. The surname, however, is now most common in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, and could be a variant of Hinton.
