I am from a family of Duttons living in Durban, South Africa.My great grandfather came over in the South African War at the end of the c.19th. - with the Canadian forces.The story goes that at the end of the war he was asked to stay here by the Canadin authorities.
His name was James (or John) Dutton (I can check this with my father), from Montreal, Canada.His father, Charles Orlando Dutton emigrated from England along with his wife, Eliza Dutton.Their father was William Henry Dutton - who remained in Englnd as far as I can tell.
I have not been able to verify these points - but am trying to find anything about the Duttons in Canada.
Thanks and good luck - PS If you have any information that you expect might be of interest to me, please forward it.
