The rarity of spellings with a medial e suggests that we have here a compound of OE weall, 'wall,' and tun , rather than weala (v. wealh ). The place is less than a mile from the Fosse Way and there may well have been some Roman villa or building here, the remains of which were still visible in Anglo-Saxon times.Robert de Deyvill ' held one manor in 1242 (Fees) and William Maudut the other in 1221 (Ass ), but the association of these families with Walton goes back to the time of Henry i (Dugdale 442–3). Dugdale (loc. cit .) says that Theodoric was the name of a tenant of Walton Deyville and Spilebert of a tenant of Walton Mauduit.
