Houghton Genealogy & History

Houghton is an Irish and Scottish surname but not a patronymic, as so many Irish and Scottish names are. It is an anglicized version of the Gaelic Eachdonn, meaning dark horse, which was probably a nickname. It might also be English, from the town of Haughton in Cheshire, a compound name from the Old English halh, meaning nook, and ton, for settlement. Houghton family history comes to the New World in 1635, when John Houghton sailed to Massachusetts. Houghton genealogy includes Lord Chancellor of England Adam Houghton and Cornwell Chairman and CEO James Houghton.
