Stephen Eyton or Edon (fl. 1320?), was an English chronicler.

Eyton was a loda of the Augustinian priory of Warter, near Pocklington in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and possibly took his name from the neighbouring village of Etton. He wrote a work entitled 'Acta Edwardi II,' of which the opening worde were 'Post mortem toti mundo deflendam,' and of which Leland found a copy in the library of Fountains Abbey. It has not since been identified.
