” Salt, Salter, Sulter, Saltman and Salterman”

Olde English pre 7th century world “sealt” meaning salt. The surname from this source is first recorded towards the middle of the 13th century (see below), and Thomas le Selter appears in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296, whilst John Saltman is recorded in the Pipe Rolls of Suffolk in 1327. The second distinct possibility is that the name derives from the pre 7th century Olde French words “saltere or sautere”, meaning a psalter. This was a stringed instrument like a harp, which was very popular in the medieval period. In the Assize Court rolls of Northumberland, we have the recording of a musician called William le Salterer, meaning one who played the psalter, whilst another recording is that of William le Sautreour. He was minstrel to Queen Margaret, the wife of King Edward 1st (1272 – 1307) in the Calendar of Letter Books for the City of London, dated 1304. An interesting namebearer was one James Salter who flourished around the year 1723. He was a proprietor of “Don Saltero’s Coffee-house”, Chelsea,Read more:

” The city’s first settlers were ACADIANS who settled at what they called Le Coude, or “the elbow.” These Acadian settlers were rounded up for deportation in 1755. In 1766 settlers of German origin arrived from Pennsylvania and called their community The Bend. ”

“The turning point in its economic history was the establishment of a shipyard by George and Joseph Salter in 1849. By 1850 the shipping trade had become important enough that Moncton was made a port of entry. The town was incorporated in 1855 with Joseph Salter as its first mayor, and that same year the first bank, the Westmorland Bank, was established.”

“Joseph was born in 1865. He is the son of John Salter and Sophie Geller. He passed away in 1921. [1]


This site above talks about the freemason Salters group, but I’m not Sure if it is more than just a freemason unoin or perhaps also an family name,

Since before the Romans, the Anglo Saxons had developed methods of extracting salt and the importance of salt was well established. Roman soldiers were given salt rations and this “Sal” is the origin of the word “salary”. A soldier failing in battle or falling asleep at his post was “not worth his salt”.

Cheshire’s name was originally derived from an early name for Chester, and was first recorded as Legeceasterscir in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles,[6] meaning the shire of the city of legions.[7] Although the name first appears in 980, it is thought that the county was created by Edward the Elder around 920.[7] In the Domesday Book, Chester was recorded as having the name Cestrescir (Chestershire), derived from the name for Chester at the time.

Collin, Collins

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

“The surname Collins has a variety of likely origins in Britain and Ireland:

  1. Anglo-Saxon: A patronymic surname based on the name Colin, an English diminutive form of Nicholas. In England, Collins usually signified “son of Colin.”
  2. Irish: “cuilein” = darling, a term of endearment applied to a whelp or young animal. The medieval surname was Ua Cuiléin, which has usually become Ó Coileáin today.
  3. Welsh: Collen = hazel, hazel grove.

Alternative spellings or related surnames include Collin, Colling, Coling, Collings, Colings, Collis, Coliss, Collen, and Collens.[1]

The earliest documented evidence of the name in England dates back as far as the twelfth and thirteenth centuries where several instances have been recorded. One Colinus de Andresia appears in the pipe rolls of Berkshire in 1191, while a Colinus is mentioned in Hartopp’s Register of the Freeman of Leicester recorded in 1196. The name Colinc is also mentioned several times in the Domesday Book. The personal name Colin from which the surname derives has an even older history; Ceawlin, the king of the West Saxons, Caelin, a brother of St Chad, and the early Welsh saint, Kollen, all have names related to Colin. In Ireland, Collins may be regarded as a genuinely indigenous Irish name; in fact, it is one of the most numerous surnames, ranked number 30.[2]

This “name” was composed of two syllables with each syllable representing a “root”, and each “root” having a specific meaning. This name was very important to the Germans, for it represented that whatever they were today, whatever they would be tomorrow, and whatever virtues they would pass along to their namesakes, all lay in that “name” and so the Germans chose their name very carefully.”I don’t know if the name Whittaker is German but just in case researcher contect page =?

Carnia Germany, above

“This region was initially populated by Carni, a Celtic people, from whom its name comes. The Carni lived for centuries in the fertile plains between the Rhine and the Danube rivers where other Celtic peoples lived. Starting from 400 BCE, the demographic growth and the pressure of the Germanic peoples, originated a migratory flood towards the south. The Carni crossed the Alps through the Mount Croce Carnico pass and settled in the region which is nowadays named Carnia and in the piedmont zone of Friuli. They practiced hunting and breeding. During the hard winters the herders used to move with their cattle down to the piedmont plains. Also they were skillful iron and wood manufacturers.
……… I removed part of the Paragraph

The first historical date related to the arrival of the Carni is 186 BCE, when some 50,000 Carni, composed of armed men, women and children descended towards the plains (in which they previously used to winter) and on a hill they founded a stable defensive settlement, Akileja.”

“The Carni (Greek Καρνίοι) were a tribe of the Eastern Alps in classical antiquity, settling in the mountains separating Noricum and Venetia.

They are usually considered a Gaulish tribe,[1] although some associate them with the Venetic peoples, a group closely related to but probably distinct from the Celts.[2] Their area of settlement isn’t known with precision. Strabo confines them to the mountains, while Ptolemy assigns them two cities near the Adriatic coast. They are likely eponymous of the regions of Carnia, Carniola and Carinthia.[3]


Acarnania, now Carnia, a province of ancient Greece lying between AEtolia and the Ionian sea; a rugged country, populated by shepherds of Epirot race who in olden times served the Athenians as slingers. Chief town, Stratos, afterwards Leucas.

Lawtan, ?

“Loton, Lorton, Lotton, Loughmane, Loughton, Lawtons, Laughton, Lowton, Lawton, Loughmant, Loughmend, Loughman, Loughmand, Loughment, Loughmyn, Loughmen, Loughmint, Loughmynd and Loughmind.”

“The history of the Anglo-Saxon surname Laughton appeared in a significant number of these records and the earliest origins of the distinguished family were found in Cheshire. Early references to the surname mention Adam de Lauton who was recorded in the Pipe Rolls for Lancashire in 1205 and in 1281 Philip de Lauton was listed in the Assize Rolls for Cheshire. Throughout the Middle Ages the Laughton family played an influential role in social, economic and political development of Cheshire. As a result of their contributions to local affairs, the Laughton family developed a prestigious reputation among the other notable families in their community.”

“This distinguished Cheshire family prospered on their estates for several centuries increasing their wealth and territorial holdings through marriage with other prominent families.

The 1984 edition of the Report of Distribution of Surnames in the Social Security lists the surname Lawton as the 2,311st most popular surname in the United States.

“Lachestone, Lactone, Lestun”, and “Lastone” in the Domesday Book of 1086, however; Laughton near Folkingham in Lincolnshire, appearing as “Lohtun” circa 1067 in Wills Records of that county, and as “Loctone” in the Domesday Book, has as its initial element the Olde English “loc”, enclosure; hence, “enclosed tun”.

Walter de Laughton (Leicestershire, 1327), and Thomas Laughton, noted in the Coroners Rolls of Nottinghamshire, dated 1541. A Coat of Arms granted to the Laughton family is a silver shield with three gold mullets on a black bend.”

from the site above

Lawton : English Place name from settlements common in Lancashire and Yorkshire, from Buglawton or Church Lawton in Cheshire, which derived their names from Old English hlaw = hill, burial mound + tun = enclosure, settlement. The literal meaning would be “hill settlement” and someone from that place might be identified as Lawton.”
Leighton: an English place name for the man who emigrated from any of the so-named locations in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Shropshire,, which were named from Old English leac = leek + tun = settlement, enclosure, and translated as “settlement at the place of the leeks.” Although Laughton, Layton, Leyton were drawn from the same origin, those names are polygenetic and were drawn from other origins occasionally as well. ”

short “Lawton Hall” estate history

I already put this site up above, just thought this was interesting.

“An old encyclopedia says of Chester, of Cheshire or Chester county: “A city and seaport of England, c. of Chester, on the Dee 164 m n w of London. This is one of the most picturesque cities of Europe, exhibiting as it does the architectural features of a city of the Middle Ages in perfect preservation. Its streets are arched over by the colonnades of the houses, here called rows. The old walls form a magnificent promenade. The cathedral is a noble Gothic pile built in 1094 (375 feet long and its tower 127 feet high, according to another authority), and in a crypt of St. John’s church built in 698 is interred Harold, the last of the Saxon kings. Chester, originally a Roman city (cestrium) and esteemed the key to North Wales sustained a long siege during the civil wars 1644. The heirs apparent to the English throne take as their second title that of Earl of Chester.”

“Richard de Lauton (x in the reported lineage), ”


“Ormerod, the genealogical authority, has the following regarding the Church in his survey of the Lawtons:

“The foundation seems to be about the close of the eleventh century, when a chapel was originally erected here by Hugh de Mara, then Lord of Lawton. The early ancestors of the Lawtons appear to have held an interest in the church, as it was soon after called when Ranulf, son of William, and William, son of Adam de Lawton quitclaimed the advowson to Abbot Simon, or Roger, and the Convent of St. Werburgh.”

– End of Excerpt-”

There was much turmoil in the land, and robbery was a way of life. To combat this, Alfred instituted a new system. All freeborn men were assigned to groups of ten, named Tythings. Each group of ten Tythings, were in turn, put into larger groups called a Hundred which also referred to the area they were located in. The shire of Chester, located in west central England, originally had twelve Hundreds, but they were reduced to seven during the reign of King Edward III, between 1327 and 1377. The seven Hundreds of Cheshire are Northwich, Namptwich, Macclesfield, Bucklow, Salisbury, Broxton, and Wirehall. The township of Lawton is in the southeast section of the Hundred of Northwich.”

 “King William named Hugh de Mara (AKA Hugh Lupus or Hugh the Wolf), a loyal Norman relative, as Earl of Chester giving him all land within the palatinate, and royal powers to control it. Hugh, in turn, doled out land to fellow Normans who swore allegiance to him. He founded the Abbey of Werburgh for the Benedictines in 1093. Part of the Abbey possessions was the township of Lautune on the southeastern border of Cheshire. Long before the conquest it had been called Lauton Under Lyme. It consisted of about two and a half square miles of land which was divided into two portions, one being about double the size of the other. It had existed prior to the Domesday Book, having been described as formerly belonging to a man named Godric. It is certain that the possessors of Lautune after the conquest were the very elite of Normandy that had followed the fortunes of The Conqueror. As landowners they were given the honorary title of Squire denoting their status. “

The Lawton Family

Although it is nearly absolute that any landowning family in Cheshire were descendants of those who had came from Normandy with William the Conqueror in 1066, it is during the reign of Richard the Lionhearted between 1189 and 1199, that ancestors of a branch of a present day Lawton family are first recorded in the area. At this time a man named Adam was noted as the owner of a part of Lautune, the other part being owned by the Abbot and Monks of Saint Werburg’s monastery. At the time people had only a first name, and were usually known by where they lived. Thus Adam was known as Adam de Lautune because of his Norman ancestry. Adam had three sons named Adam, Robert, and Richard. Richard, the youngest son, born before 1236, had a son Richard born between 1260 and 1280. That Richard, in turn, had a son also named Richard before 1300. By this time it was decreed that all of the population would adapt a surname for proper identification. Thus Richard de Lautune became known as Richard Lawton.

Richard Lawton III married Cicely Astburie and they, between 1315 and 1330, became the parents of a daughter named Agnes.

Agnes married a man named Thomas Davenport. Upon his marriage to Agnes he became a landowner in Lawton, and thenceforth became known as Thomas Lawton. Thomas and Agnes parented a son between 1330 and 1350 whose name is today unknown.

This unnamed son of Thomas and Agnes had a son named Hugh Lawton born before 1378. Hugh was appointed an archer of the Crown November 5, 1398, in the principality of Wales. He married Isabella, daughter of John Madoc, widow of Ben Kynge Bernys (Barnes). Hugh and Isabella had two sons named Hugh and John, but all three males died before Isabella.

The eldest son, Hugh jr., did not marry nor have children, but the younger brother, John, married Beatrice the widow ofThomas Maddock, and to them a son was born about 1435.

Upon the death of his grandmother Richard became head of the estate. On the 6th of January 1473 Richard was yet head of the estate when he lost a court decision to Hugh Pole over some disputed land. Richard’s wife’s name is unknown, but it is known that they had a son named John about 1470.

John married Eleanor More and they parented three sons. John was known to have been a very wealthy man. Their oldest son, William, was born around 1500. William was in control of the estate when in 1542 King Henry VIII dissolved all monasteries and William, having the wealth to do so, bought the available land. William married Catherine Bellott and they had four sons and five daughters. The second son’s name was John. Born in 1521, John was 21 when his father purchased the monastery acreage. John Lawton, born 1521, married Margaret Dutton, near to the time his father died in 1551. Between their marriage and 1560 they had five sons and a daughter. John died in 1598. Their eldest son, William, was born in 1553.

William married first Maria Wood, and second Mary Maxfield before 1607 when their first child John was born. They also had a daughter Eleanor in 1611, and a son William in 1613. The elder William was known to have added large tracts of land to the Lawton estate before his death in 1617, when John was ten years old.

Upon William’s death, Ralph Sneyd was made manager of the estate, and given the honorary title of Lord of the manor. John Lawton married Ralph’s daughter Clare Sneyd. To John and Clare were born three sons and a daughter, named William, Ralph, John, and Felicia, between 1630 and 1635. In 1647 John paid a huge fine of 680 pounds, and was pardoned for waging war against King Charles I, himself beheaded two years later. His eldest son William, born in 1630, succeeded John, who died in 1654.

William was head of the manor in 1656, when King Charles II spent some time as a guest while awaiting his restoration to the Throne. It was at this time that John Lawton was born, and Charles II, as his Godfather, presented him with a silver drinking cup remarking he had little else to offer.”

Hello world!

“” Turn to the letter z in the New York telephone directory and you will find a truly astonishing array of foreign names, some of them in process of anglicization, but many of them still arrestingly outlandish. The only Anglo-Saxon surname beginning with z is Zacharias 5 and even that was originally borrowed from the Greek. To this the Norman invasion seems to have added only Zouchy. But in Manhattan and the Bronx, even among the necessarily limited class of telephone subscribers, there are nearly 1500 persons whose names begin with the letter, and among them one finds fully 150 different surnames.”

Grün was changed to Green
So with the kn in the German names of the Knapp class; they are nearly all pronounced, probably by analogy with Knight, as if they began with n.”

Moreover, the general feeling penetrates the man himself, particularly if he be ignorant, and he comes to believe that his name is not only a handicap, but also intrinsically discreditable—that it wars subtly upon his worth and integrity. 27 This feeling, perhaps, accounted for a good many changes of surnames among Germans and Jews of German name upon the entrance of the United States into the war. But in the majority of cases, of course, the changes so copiously reported—e. g., from Bielefelder to Benson, and from Pulvermacher to Pullman—were merely efforts at protective coloration. The immigrant, in a time of extraordinary suspicion and difficulty, tried to get rid of at least one handicap. 28    13
  This motive constantly appears among the Jews, who face an anti-Semitism that is imperfectly concealed and may be expected to grow stronger hereafter. Once they have lost the faith of their fathers, a phenomenon almost inevitable in the first native-born generation, they shrink from all the disadvantages that go with Jewishness, and seek to conceal their origin, or, at all events, to avoid making it unnecessarily noticeable. 29 To this end they modify the spelling of the more familiar Jewish surnames, turning Levy into Lewy, Lewyt, Levitt, Levin, Levine, Levey, Levie 30 and even Lever; Cohen into Cohn, Cahn, Kahn, Kann, Coyne and Conn; Aarons into Arens and Ahrens, and Solomon into Salmon, Salomon and Solmson. 31 In the same way they shorten their long names, changing Wolfsheimer to Wolf, Goldschmidt to Gold, and Rosenblatt, Rosenthal, Rosenbaum, Rosenau, Rosenberg, Rosenbusch, Rosenblum, Rosenstein, Rosengarten, Rosenheim and Rosenfeldt to Rose or Ross. 32 Like the Germans, they also seek refuge in translations more or less literal. Thus, on the East Side of New York, Blumenthal is often changed to Bloomingdale, Schneider to Taylor, Reichman to Richman, and Schlachtfeld to Warfield. One Lobenstine (i. e., Lobenstein) had his name changed to Preston during the war, and announced that this was “the English version” of his patronymic. A Wolfsohn similarly became a Wilson, though without attempting any such fantastic philological justification for the change. 33 Fiedler, a common Jewish name, often becomes Harper in New York; so does Pikler, which is Yiddish for drummer. Stolar, which is a Yiddish word borrowed from the Russian, signifying carpenter, is changed to Carpenter. Lichtman and Lichtenstein become Chandler. Meilach, which is Hebrew for king, becomes King, and so does Meilachson. The strong tendency to seek English-sounding equivalents for names of noticeably foreign origin changes Sher into Sherman, Michel into Mitchell, 34 Rogowsky into Rogers, Kolinsky into Collins, Rabinovitch into Robbins, Davidovitch into Davis, Moiseyev into Macy or Mason, and Jacobson, Jacobovitch and Jacobovsky into Jackson. This last change proceeds by way of a transient change to Jake or Jack as a nickname. Jacob is always abbreviated to one or the other on the East Side. Yankelevitch also becomes Jackson, for Yankel is Yiddish for Jacob. 35 The Jews go further with such changes than any other people. They struggle very hard for position, and try to rid themselves of every unnecessary handicap. Moreover, they are supported by the historical name-shedding of a very eminent Jew, the Saul of Tarsus who became Paul. In precisely the same way, on attaining to 100 per cent Americanism, the Itzik Kolinsky of today becomes Sidney Collins.”

” A good many American Jews, aiming at a somewhat laborious refinement, change the pronunciation of the terminal stein in their names so that it rhymes, not with line, but with bean. Thus, in fashionable Jewish circles, there are no longer any Epsteins, Goldsteins and Hammersteins but only Epsteens, Goldsteens and Hammersteens. The American Jews differ further from the English in pronouncing Levy to make the first syllable rhyme with tea; the English Jews always make the name Lev-vy, to rhyme with heavy. In general there is a tendency in America to throw the accents back, i. e., in such names as Cassels, Brennan, Gerard, Doran, Burnett, Maurice, etc. In England the first syllable is commonly accented; in the United States, the second.”
