Frankton is a village and civil parish in the Rugby borough of Warwickshire in England. In the 2001 census it had a population of 344,[1] increasing to 351 at the 2011 Census.[2]


According to W. H. Duignan, the town's earliest name, Franchtone, was derived from the Anglo-Saxon Franca or Franco (the personal name of the original settler, which is probably derived from the national name of the Franks) and -tun, making it either "Franca's town" or "the town of the Franks".[3]
