Meaning & History
Habitational name, probably an altered form of Baxenden, a place near Accrington, which is named with an unattested Old English word bæcstān meaning "bakestone" (a flat stone on which bread was baked) + denu meaning "valley". Middle English dale was sometimes substituted for Old English denu in northern place names.
