"Roughton surname is English meaning one who came from Roughton - rough ground homestead or a rye farm. Middle English term 'rough" was written as 'ruh' in O.E. Or it also is possible that the Lincolnshire and Norfolk Roughton may be a Scaninavianized form of Old Englishryge-tun or rye farm. Old Scaninavian "rugr" replacing the OE ryge. Tun or ton is Danish for town. There are two Roughton parishes in England in Lincolnshire and Norfolk
