The surname Renton originates from Renton in the parish of Coldingham in Berwickshire. The name means the town of Raegen Rein, which is a shortened form of the old English name Raegenwald.
During the reign of William the Lion, the Rentons of Renton were the hereditary foresters of Coldingham, and Ricardus forestarius appears in record as Ricardus de Reningtona.
