Origins of surname

This surname comes from either or both of two places in England with the same name. It is ultimately derived from the Norse personal name Gunnr from gunn = 'battle', with the old English tun = 'enclosure' or 'settlement'.

Early records

The family name first appeared in Jersey records at the end of the 18th century with the marriage of Robert Gunton of Suffolk to Mary Aiken. Their first child had been baptised a year earlier. They had a total of nine children baptised in St Helier.
