Surname Has At Least 11 Variant Spellings !!

Del 80

Hello, I am having a break from researching my other half's family, so thought I would try and go back further with my own, I can get back to the early 1800's, then I hit a snag, mainly due to the many variant spellings of the name. I am trying to connect one Anthony Ayto, of Normanton in Lincolnshire, with the Eato family of Langford, in Nottinghamshire.Anthony Ayto's father was one John Eatough of North Collingham, Nottinghamshire,this is just 2 miles from Langford, but I cannot make a connection, any help appreciated....Del.
