Eggleton Family HistoryThis name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational surname deriving from either the place called "Eggleton" in the parish of Bishop's Frome in Herefordshire or from the place in Rutland called "Egleton", near Oakham. The place in Herefordshire is recorded as "Eglingtone" in 1212, and means "the settlement of Ecgwulf's people", derived from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name "Edgwulf", composed of the elements "ecg", edge, point (of a weapon), and "wulf", wolf, with the suffix "ing(as)", indicating "people of", and "tun", village, settlement.
