What's in a name?
The name OXTON means "A place to keep oxen." A "ton" in
case is like a pound, as in dog pound.
I have located several villages in Britian by the name
OXTON. One is a wee bit east of Sherwood Forest and it once was within
the bounds of Sherwood. Another is in Merseyside near Liverpool while a
very small OXTON is near York. One I have not visited is near the
Another line of reason has it that OXTON derives
OAKS TOWN. There are several variations on both names: OXEN, OXDON,
any O or E to A and you end up with an alphabet soup of surnames),

several of the most common variations. Any name with the same Soundex
something worth knowing about.
