Scotton's of Claybrook, Leicester, England
I first ran into the Scotton family, when researching my Hurst line. William Hurst born about 1752, married Ann Scotton on April 1, 1777. Ann was christened on November 18, 1752 in Claybrook. Her parents were Nathaniel Scotton and Charity(?). Nathaniel was christened on November 26, 1732 in Claybrook.Nathaniel's parent's were Joseph scotton and Alice Cross(e). Joseph was christened on March 16, 1704, and Alice and he, married on February 9, 1729, in Claybrook.Joseph's parent's were Nathaniel Scotton and Mary Gumby, who were married on July 3, 1682, in claybrook. This is all I know of the Scotton's. If anyone has any info to fill out this very basic knowledge, or can trace further back on this line, I would love to hear from you.
