Tewkesbury Parish, a borough, market town, and parish, having separate jurisdiction, locally in the lower division of the hundred of Tewkesbury, county of Gloucester, less than 2 mi. from Ashchurch, 10 miles NNE of Gloucester, and 103 WNW of London…

1668-71 (Annapolis, MD. Chancery Proceedings, CD; 87-91) Suit. In re a tract "Persimmon Point," 400 acres in Baltimore County [MD] on Rumley Creek purchased by John HATTON, names Thomas HATTON of Tewkesbury in the county of Glouster in the Kingdom of England, brother and heir of John HATTON formerly of London, and Samuel HATTON. (Maryland Calendar of Wills)

It is believed probable that the above John HATTON is the same as:

14th Dec., 1654; -- -- -- Will of John HATTON of London, To sisters and brothers, viz., Sarah, Susan, Hanna, Henry and Samuel, personalty. Brother Thomas, residuary legatee of estate, real and personal, including lands left by father, John HATTON. Exs.: Thos. HATTON afsd., Robt. LLEWELIN. Test: Richd. COLCHESTER, Hercules COMMANDER, Sr. (1. 519. MD Calendar of Wills, Vol. 1)


Jul 1663 John HATTON, formerly of London and now Merchant of Maryland, died in 1663 in Maryland, seized of divers tracts, 600 acres in Baltimore County, 350 acres called Mt. Harmour, 400 acres of James RIGBY in Rumley Creek, a parcel on Chester River called Whiteclifts. His Brother, Thomas HATTON, of Tewksburry, in Gloucester Co. England is Heir (Archives of Maryland, V. LI., Abstracts of Chancery Court Records Of Maryland 1669-1782, By Debbie Hooper, p. 101) John HATTON of Virginia. Probate to the brother, Thomas HATTON, the other executor, Robert LEWELLIN, having died. (July 1663). ("American Wills And Administrations in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury 1610-1857" by Peter Wilson Coldham, 1989) 1668-71 (Annap. Chan. Proc. CD; 87-91) Suit re the tract "Persimmon Point," in Baltimore County on Rumley Creek purchased by John HATTON, also names Thomas HATTON of Tewkesbury, brother and heir of John HATTON formerly of London, and Samuel HATTON. (See Also Samuel HATTON, Merchant of Bristol).

This family has not been actively researched; however, it is possible that Thomas HATTON was the same who was earlier Secretary of Maryland Province with intermarriages with the Combs-Manning Families of St. Mary's Co, MD. Samuel HATTON, d ca 1688, Talbot Co, MD, m Elizabeth, widow of Richard GORSUCH (d ca 1677, Talbot Co, MD, s/o John GORSUCH of Walkern, Hertfordshire, and Anne LOVELACE of Bethersden, Kent). Edward ROE of Lancaster Co, VA, d testate 1676, Talbot Co, MD, with bequests to children of Richard & Elizabeth GORSUCH. Edward's daughters, Elizabeth and Mary ROE married, probably in Talbot, William and John Combs, respectively. William and Elizabeth ROE Combs also lived in St. Mary's Co, MD for at least a short time. William d 1689-1692, and his widow, Elizabeth, remarried 1691-8, Nicholas LOWE.
