The surname of DUTTON was a locational name 'of Dutton', a township in the parish of Ribchester, County Lancashire. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Henry de Dutton of the County of Lancashire in 1332. Edward Dutton of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. William Dutton, was documented in the Preston Guild Rolls in 1415. Thomas Dutton and Judith Jennings were married in London in 1579. Originally the coat of arms identified the wearer, either in battle or in tournaments. Completely covered in body and facial armour the knight could be spotted and known by the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped garment which enveloped him. Between the 11th and 15th centuries it became customary for surnames to be assumed in Europe, but were not commonplace in England or Scotland before the Norman Conquest of 1066. They are to be found in the Domesday Book of 1086. Those of gentler blood assumed surnames at this time, but it was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that second names became general practice for all people. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Registered at Dutton, County Chester). Odard, the ancestor of this family came in with the Conqueror; from him descend the Warburtons of Arley.) Adam le Dutton Feudal lord of Warburton, templar, Henry II Richard I and King John, Sir Peter le Dutton assumed the surname Warburton during the reign of Edward II (1307-1327). Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error.
