Warrington Family History
Warrington Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Warrington in Lancashire. The placename probably derives from Old English wering wæring ‘dam’ (a derivative of wer wær ‘weir’) + tūn ‘farmstead estate’. There is also a place called Warrington in Buckinghamshire but it is unlikely to be the source of the surname.
