Re: John Hilton b. 1642 England, St.Mary's, MD married Jane
I'm not ever sure we are talking about the same Hilton line, but in working through Ancestry.com I have traced my line,(on my father's side.I'm also a Hilton on my mother's side) back quite a ways.Originally I was back to John Leonard Hilton, born in St. Mary's, Maryland in 1650, also married to a Jane.Then I found his father, also a John Hilton married to a Jane, born in England.Right now I can't find the print-outs, but in this line I have a Wm. Hilton, born 1550/1560 in Norwich, Wilton Twp, Chester, England.Now this line went on back to William DE Hilton (Sir).I don't have dates on him, but his son, Romanus DE Hilton (Sir) died after 1066.
Don't know if this helps or confuses, but it's all I have.
