Origins of surname

Various places in England, from Yorkshire south, were named Denton, from the old English denu = 'valley' and tun = 'farm' or 'settlement'; ie the settlement in the valley. THis became a family name as early as the 10th century.

Early records

This is one of those surnames which have been present in Jersey for a long time - the first Denton baptisms were registered at the turn of the 16th/17th centuries, yet has never been numerous. Only 29 baptisms are on record since the first in 1688, and it is doubtful whether any of the Dentons in Jersey today can trace their ancestry back to the earliest family.
