The name Admaston is derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal name Ēadmund and means 'Ēadmund‘s town'; it was recorded in the 12th century as Edmundestone and Admerdeston, and in the 13th century as Admundestan and Edmundestone.[2]

It is a namesake of Admaston/Bromley township in Renfrew County, Eastern Ontario, Canada, which took part of its name from this hamlet in the 19th century.[3]
