Burton Genealogy & History

Burton, a surname of Anglo-Saxon origin, comes from people living in settlements near forts. The latter was called burg, the former tun, and they combined for Burton, Bortone, Bourton or Borton in the Domesday Book of 1086. Burton family history properly begins in Yorkshire in the 12th century, however, since that's when the surname was first recorded as such, as opposed to the name of a place people lived near. Burton genealogy features many well-known people, including Richard Burton, the 20th-century Welsh actor; Richard Burton, the 19th-century English explorer and polymath; and 14-term Indiana Representative Dan Burton.
