On the Duston Family Name

From The Cheney Genealogy by Rev. Charles Henry Pope, 1897. 

 


The spelling of the name, it must be said, is given in a great many ways: Judge
Sewall, in his diary wrote in "Dunstan" which is the way the famous "St. Dunstan" 's name was spelled: another excellent authority spelled it Durstan: the attorney who wrote the wills of the good couple gave the style "Dustin", which was probably the way it was usually pronounced: but the best authorities, in the opinion of the writer, spell it as it is uniformly given in this volume,--Duston.
