My great grandfather was a Roughton. He was born about 1876 and for many years lived in Raunds, Northamptonshire, England, as the village cobbler. He was George Frederick Roughton. He read politics and philosophy voraciously. I still have some of his books.
One of his daughers, Eva, became my mother's mother. Eva married Charles Horner. Horner is another fairly rare name in England.
