Origin of Alto, Meaning of Alto

Origin: The surname DAYTON is perhaps a weak form of DALTON or more probably a variation of DEIGHTON. The form DALTON is derived from the word 'dale', probably referring to the farm or habitation of the earliest English forbears of the American family of DAYTON. The name DEIGHTON is derived from the Danish and originally meant the dike enclosure of the farm by the dike. Variations of this latter form are DAITON, DATON, DAIGHTON, DAYGHTON, and DIGHTON. In early American records, DRAYTON was sometimes used interchangeably with DAYTON. It is recorded that a family, variously noted as DEIGHTON, DYGHTON, and DEYSON, as early as the thirteenth century resided in the vicinity of the hamlet of Deighton, in the parish of Deighton, in the east riding of Yorkshire. This hamlet is about four and a half miles south east from the present city of York. The early DEIGHTONs appear to have been for generations tenants of a farm on the Manor of Deighton. The Abbott of St. Mary's of York is named as the lord of the manor. The family at that time was of the yeomanry, but the family annals reveal a steady rise in both social and economic position.
