George Walton

died 1690

Father unknown
Mother unknown
Wife Alice(?)
Children William, Charles, John(?), George(?), Alice(?), Elizabeth(?)


Nothing is known of George's origins, but he appears to have been the progenitor of all the Waltons of Tideswell. His wife was probably called Alice (1).

He first appeared in the Tideswell parish register in 1650, when his son William was baptised (3). His son Charles followed 2 years later (4). He probably had at least two more sons John and George, and two daughters, Alice and Elizabeth too (5).

He seems to have been a close associate of the Mycock family, being a witness to the will, and taking the inventory, of William Mycock in 1667(6)(7), then taking the inventory of Thomas Mycock in 1676 (8).

He died in in 1690 and was buried on 18th December in Tideswell (9). His wife survived him by 10 years (2).


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. This is based on my attempt to reconstruct the entire Walton family of Tideswell from the parish registers (5). There is a burial of an otherwise unknown Alice Walton, widow, ten years after his death (2), with no other candidate husband for her besides George.
  2. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [January 1699] Sept Alicia Walton de Tiddswell vidua       14
    This is dated by the Julian calendar, so is actually 14/1/1700 in the Gregorian calendar.
  3. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [April: 1650] Bapt William Walton sone of George       26:
  4. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [Sept: 1652] Bapt George Charles Walton sone of George       11:
  5. No baptisms are recorded in Tideswell for these four possible children of George. This claim is based on my attempt to reconstruct the entire Walton family of Tideswell from the parish registers. Other than his possible wife Alice Walton (1), and a later Charles Walton (probable grandson of George, who was having children from 1703-1713), these four people and their descendants are the only Waltons from the period I worked on, whose lineage back to George cannot be easily gleaned from the parish registers (and a few wills too in later generations).
    There was a John Walton having children in Tideswell between 1677-1692, a George Walton who married in Tideswell in 1686 and had children baptised there up till 1701, and an Alice Walton who married there in 1686. These three were thus contemporaries of George's known sons William (children between 1673-1684) and Charles (children 1678-1685), and likely to be their siblings.
    Elizabeth Walton married in Tideswell in 1692. She is probably another younger sibling. However this assumes that the two baptisms in 1850 (3) & 1852 (4) were at or near the start of the period when George was having children (which fits the apparent ages of John, George and Alice), and that Elizabeth was amongst his youngest children, born perhaps 15 or 20 years later. It is also possble though, that Elizabeth could amongst George's eldest grandchildren (the eldest known of was William's son William, who was baptised in 1673).
  6. Will of William Mycock, husbandman of Tideswell (ref: B/C/11/William Mycock, Tideswell, 1667 @ LRO), dated 13/1/1667 was witnessed by Edward Bagshawe, George Walton & Christopher Drake.
  7. Inventory of William Mycock, husbandman of Tideswell (ref: B/C/11/William Mycock, Tideswell, 1667 @ LRO), dated 20/2/1667 was taken by Robert Allen, Edward Bagshaw & George Walton.
  8. Inventory of Thomas Mycock of Tideswell (ref: B/C/11/Thomas Mycock, Tideswell, 1676 @ LRO), dated 24/6/1676 was taken by George Walton, John Beard & Ellis Ouldfield.
  9. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [Decembr 1690] Sept Georgius Walton de Tiddswell [sene..]       18
