EtymologyEdit

Habitational surname from a Northeastern English place name, attested around 1096 in Old English as Wasindone. While the origins of the place name are not fully known, local historians favour the theory that it developed from an Old English place name Hwæssingatūn, meaning "a settlement of the household of Hwæssa", from Hwæssa (a Saxon chieftain's name) +‎ -ing (belonging to) +‎ tūn. (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
