Meaning & History

habitational name from any of the numerous places called Charlton, from Old English Ceorlatun meaning "settlement of the peasants". With old English elements tun "settlement, yard, town" and ceorl denoted originally a free peasant of the lowest rank, later (but probably already before the Norman conquest) a tenant in pure villeinage, a serf or bondsman.
