Catton family of Lowthorpe

Postby docruth » Thu Jun 09, 2011 3:21 pm

Searching for information on my ancestors, William Catton and wife Jane Snowball Catton. Especially want to find out when William emigrated to the USA. I have found Jane and the rest of the family on a ship's list, but not William. He would have emigrated between 1831 and 1835 (his father, also William Catton died in 1831.)

It should be noted that an examination of White's Directory (1840,) reveals that there is a Robert Catton listed as a farmer:

LOWTHORPE, a small village and parish, 5 miles N.E. Driffield, has 138 inhabitants, and 1960 acres of land, mostly the property of Wm. St. Quintin, Esq., the lord of the manor and patron of the church, whose ancient hall here was taken down in 1826. His family derived this estate in marriage with the daughter of Sir John Hesleton, who instituted a college of six chantry priests, and three clerks, in the Church, (St. Martin,)in 1333, and it was not dissolved till 1579. The nave is fitted up for divine service, but the chancel has long been roofless, and has now two large ash trees growing within its ruined walls. The vicarage is now valued at £64, and is enjoyed by the Rev. Thos. Ibbotson. The farmers are Rt. Catton, John Hornby, Jerh., John, and Wm. Lamplough, Wm. Linskill, (& miller,)Jas Robson, Thomas Russell, and Thomas Thornton.
