Dighton Family Crest


Dighton Family Crest
The English surname Dighton, chiefly found in Yorkshire, is an habitational name from any of several places in Yorkshire named Dighton, from the Old English terms dic meaning “ditch or dyke” and tun meaning “settlement, or enclosure,” or “The settlement surrounded by a dyke or moat." The first record of the name is in 1204 when Thomas de Dicton is registered in the "Assize Court rolls of Yorkshire." The Dighton family’s ancestral seat was in the North Riding district of Yorkshire in the north of England. A notable bearer of the name was the 18th Century British artist Robert Dighton (1752-1814.)
