My name is Glen Cleeton and I came across your August post while googling for Carolina records and The Cleeton name.
Google is a hugely useful tool and there are quite a few people working the Cleeton name.

As you are from MO, then you must realize that all Cleetons in the area are related to the migration of the family from the Carolinas, through Virginia, Kentucky and Tennesee. We literally followed in Boone's footsteps.

The earliest link I have confirmed was the elder William Cleeton appearing in South Carolina in the early 1700s. I have seen a marraige record with the name from Charleston circa 1670 and one emmigration record from Wales circa 1630, bound for Jamacia of all places.

The name itself is ancient, right back to the continental Celts. Suprisingly, or not, Kleeman is still a common name over there. Literally translated it is Cloverman. In Wales, you will find the name Cleeton/St.Mary, a village that still exists and the Manor of Cleeton was registered in the Domesday book. (1066 and all that)

Family records here do seem to include the Cleaton spelling (literacy always plays a role)

Cletune and Cleoton are common Welsh variations. No relation to Clayton, a different Celtic name.

Cheers and best wishes, I'm going to copy this and try posting to the forum where I found your query.
