Re: Origin of the name Gupton?

My late grandfather, Lucian Gupton, who had lived from 1912-1998(if I remember correctly, died at Lourdes Hospital, Paducah, KY), had always told me his las name came from Whales. So Welsh it is. I do not know what Gupton means, if anything. Now the traditional Welsh language is different than an Gaielic or Cant talk....so you would have to get an old welsh language scholar to answer the meaning of the prefix, Gup.
Just thought I would help.
