General Notes (Husband)

Oxfordshire Records Office informed Kerrie McInnes that the following contained a reference to a John Hatton of Widford
25 Nov 1693, E168/D/7 Final Concord (Foot of Fine)
1. Hugh Stillgo, Zachary Stillgo and three others
2. Ezekiel Weston and seven others, deforciants,
Property: Two messuages, 70 acres of land, 15 of meadow, 15 of pasture and commons in Deddington, Westcott Barton, Horley & Horton
This may suggest that there was a John Hatton in Widford prior to Thomas birth abt 1707.

General Notes for Child John Hatton

The sale of John's property in Widford seems to have gone through in 1813 when the Freeman & Mitford families of Morton in the Marsh deposited the Title Deeds to land they had aquired at Asthall, Shipton & Widford. The Oxfordshire Records Office have these deeds amongst the Batsford Park Estate papers (ref D1447/1/260). The scope & content description refers to messuages, fields, Lower Ham, Cold Comfort, and Ten Acre Piece, 2 Cottages, a paper mill and a corn mill, all in Widford; messuages and land in Asthall; a small piece of land (abuttals) in Shilton.
