English Frankton, formerly known simply as Frankton, is a small village in Shropshire, England. It lies between the villages of Cockshutt and Loppington, in the civil parish of Cockshutt. The name Frankton probably originated as "Francas's field".[1]

It was recorded in Domesday as Franchetone, when it was held by Rainald the Sheriff from Earl Roger.[2] Domesday also noted that the manor contained one carruca, along with three villeins and two bordarii.
