Families covered: Hackluit of Hallaton, Hackluit (Hacklute) of Yatton (Yetton or Eaton)

This family is thought to have taken its name from the forest of Cluyd in Radnorshire, Wales, and to have moved to Yatton in Herefordshire in the 13th century. Yatton (or Yetton) is often identified (apparently wrongly) as Eaton.

  We presume that this was the Thomas Hackluyt of Eaton who, according to a contributor (MF, 29.08.10), (also) married Katherine Trentham and was father of Mary. We have some reservations on this because Mary's husband is shown as living until 1592. However, Katherine Trentham was a generation earlier than the Elizabeth who married Thomas's grandson Thomas (above). It is possible that Katherine was the same person as Elizabeth Trentham, and should be shown above as wife of the later Thomas, but Visitation (Staffordshire, 1583 & 1614+1663-4, 'Trentham of Rocester') does show them as different people of different generations.
