This is my Ralph (1st Baronet Sherborne)'s father.
Have you seen:
(search down for Burnt Island).
This shows a direct Dutton line from the Sherbornes, back to Odard, a close relation of William the Conqueror.
William the Conqueror was descended via the Dukes of Normandy from Rollo, a Viking who came from Norway, and became 1st Duke of Normandy.
There is a lot of stuff about Duttons and the Dukes of Normandy on the web. I can give you more pointers if you like.
Where did you get the birth date for your Ralph ?
Do you have any more details about this side of the family, i.e. his children. I only have Ralph, John and William. There were apparently a number of others - perhaps they all ended up in America ?
If you have anything about his son Ralph's last son Peter, I would be particularly interested.
Thanks for getting in touch,
