Fitton

Origen: Normando. The name Fitton is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in Fitton, in Cambridgeshire. The place-name shows the mark of the Danish influence on England before the Middle Ages. Fitton is derived from the Old Norse word fit, which means field, and the Old English word tun, for farm or fort. It literally means "fort among the fields," and was probably the site of a Danish army camp sometime in the 9th to 10th centuries. First found in Cheshire where they acquired the estates of Bolyn on the Welsh border about the year 1100 soon after the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. Conjecturally this family may have been descended from the Ancient Britons, or Welsh race.

Variantes: Fitton, Fiton, Fytton, Fyton, y otros.
