Thomas Horton was the ancestor of Thomas Horton,Regicide ISABEL HORTON born about 1542 married William Fairbanke on 28 June 1562 at Sowerby, Halifax Parish, Yorkshire.From: Torrey, Clarence Almon, "The English Ancestry of Jonathan Fairbanks of Dedham, MA - The AmericanGenealogist; Volume xxxvii (1961)From "The Bradford Telegraph and Argus, Saturday, 5 December, 1931, Mansions of Barkisland, Domestic Architecture of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries." Barkisland is about six miles from Halifax, about a mile away is Ripponden. The place may be said to have local associations, for one of the mansions already mentioned was built by a member of the Horton Family, of Great and Little Horton. This is Howroyde Hall. Over the north doorway of this hall are the initials and date: "W.H. 1642 E.H." and these initials relate to William Horton and his family. In an ancient record of the family, written on vellum, and at one time preserved at Howroyde Hall, it sets out that their original settlement seems to have been at Horton in Bradford-dale, in Yorkshire. It goes back to one Robert de horton, born 1277, who had his manor at Horton long before the days of Henry Lacy, the particulars having been taken from a deed that is "very ancient and of a Saxon character." This lordship of Horton, which thus clearly belonged to a family who took their name from it, is divided into two hamlets, viz, Horton Magna and Horton Parva; the first containing twenty-seven oxgangs and a half, the latter about eighteen oxgangs. It continued in the name of Horton till the lands belonging to that family came to the Leventhorpes by marriage; from the Leventhorpes it also went by marriage with Alice, sister and heir of one Oswald Leventhope, to John Lacy Esq., a descendant of whom called also John Lacy, sold it to Joshua Horton, of Sowerby, Esq., a younger branch of the above family of Horton, whose great great grandson, Sir Watts Horton, of Chadderton, in Lancashire, baronet, now enjoys it.Howroyd Hall, Barkisland, Hall-and-cross-wings, hearth-passage plan house built by William Horton of Bradford. Although only having two storeys, the design is similar to that of Barkisland hall. There is a large stained glass window. The Hall is approached by a long and well-wooded drive, and occupies a commanding position some distance removed from the village of Barkisland, which it overlooks across a valley. Older features of the hall suggest that Horton's building may have been an enlargement and refurbishment of an earlier hall owned by Thomas Mouldson. Howroyd became the seat of Thomas Horton, Esq. in late 1700s and early 1800s. After his death, Howroyde became the seat of his wife, Lady Mary Horton. Howroyd is located in the township of Barkisland, and Parish of Halifax. (from Halifax History Supplementary: The Parish of Halifax, 1822).(Read more about Yorkshire and Horton Family Manors) Hugh Horton Esq. was a Sheriff of Buckinghamshire in 1688. Seat, Grove in Ellisborough. Arms, Sable, a Bucks Head, Argent attired Or.
