[This page was first launched on 14.05.16 as Draft. It was moved here after review led to the expansion of the lower section, using Visitation (Huntingdonshire), but otherwise acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to it in the near future and that it was 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database. We are not aware of there being any connection between the families shown in the different sections below.]

VCH reports that the undermentioned Paul of Milton (d 1637) "settled the manor (of Milton) on his kinsman Robert Calton of Goring". The following speculates on how Paul & Robert were related.
?? Calton
1. Thomas Calton of London, later 1st of Milton (Berkshire) (a 1546, goldsmith)
VCH shows Thomas (of London, goldsmith) m. Margaret (d 08.1571), parents of William whose line it follows. Visitation (Huntingdonshire) starts with Thomas of London "aurifaber" m. Margaret Roos, parents of Nicholas whose line it follows. We surmise that William and Nicholas were brothers.
  m. Margaret Roos (d 08.1571)
  A. William Calton (dvm)
  i. Thomas Calton of Milton (b 1562-3, d 1587)
