Origen: Normando. En la antigua Inglaterra anglo sajona, la familia Eaton vivió en una granja al lado de un río, ó en una granja, ó una isla. El apellido Eaton derivó originalmente de la vieja palabra inglesa Eatun que refirió a una granja cerca de un río o isla. El apellido Eaton es un apellido topográfico, que fue dado a una persona que residió cerca de una característica física tal como una colina, una corriente, una iglesia, o un tipo de árbol. The name Eaton is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived on a farm by a river or a farm on an island. The surname Eaton originally derived from the Old English word Eatun which referred to farm on a river or island. The surname Eaton is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came. First found in Cheshire where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
