Origin & Meaning of the surname Scranton
Posted by: Patti Metsch (ID *****3305) Date: August 15, 2002 at 08:53:26

Just curious...

Has anyone come across any info on the origin and meaning of the the surname Scranton?

I am guessing it was probably a place-name, the root "ton" meaning "town," but I don't know of any town of Scranton which still exists in England...

Thanks.

Patti
