I have an ancestor:
CASTLETON HARPER - b. 1816 - Virginia

His son:
WILLIAM CASTLETON HARPER - b. 1865 - Tennessee

Though not unheard of, the Christian name "Castleton", is unusual. So I strongly suspect that my Castleton Harper had an ancestor with the surname "Castleton."

I have read somewhere that the word "castleton" actually meant "castle town" sometime in England's ancient history. Can anyone tell me more about the origins of this fascinating surname?
