5. Richard Hoghton of Park Hall, Lancashire (youngest son)
  The following comes from Commoners (vol i, Dalton of Thurnham).
  A. ?? Hoghton
  Uncertain on number of intervening generations.
  i. (John) Hoghton father of William & Jane
a. William Hoghton of Park Hall
  m. Elizabeth Dalton (d 1710, dau of Robert Dalton of Thurnham)
  (1) John Hoghton, later Dalton of Thurnham (eldest son)
  m. Frances Mostyn (dau of Sir Piers Mostyn, Bart of Talacre)
  (A) Robert Dalton of Thurnham
  Commoners (vol i, Dalton of Thurnham) shows Robert as father of John (b 1770). Provisionally, but noting that Commoners (vol iii) did not (as might be expected) cross-reference to Commoners (vol i), we assume that this was the Robert of Thurnham who married Bridget More and had children by her as shown below, as reported by Commoners (vol iii, More of Barnborough).
  m(1). Bridget More (d 07.05.1797, dau of Thomas More of Barnborough, widow of Peter Metcalfe)
(i) William Dalton (b 10.09.1763) had issue
  m. Louisa Smith (dau of Frederick Smith of St. Mary-le-bone)
  (ii) Bridget Anne Dalton
  m. (1789) Sir James Fitzgerald, Bart of Castle Ishen
  (iii) Constantia Dalton (d unm)
  Commoners (vol i, Dalton of Thurnham) does not report who was mother of the following John and, as Commoners (vol iii) does not mention him, it is assumed that Bridget More was not.
(iv) John Dalton of Thurnham (b 1770)
  m. Etheldreda Gage (d 1819)
  (a) John Dalton (dvpsp)
  m. Mary Anne Cary (dau of George Cary of Torr Abbey)
  (b) Lucy Dalton
  m. Joseph Bushell
  (c)+ other issue - Mary (d unm), Elizabeth, Bridget (d unm), Charlotte (d unm)
  b. Jane Hoghton (bur 13.10/11.1722) probably of this generation
  m. Richard Walmesley of Sholley (b 1656, d 19.08.1737)
6. Catherine Hoghton probably of this generation
  m. Cuthbert Clifton of Westby (d 1596)
7. Alice Hoghton (a 1612) probably of this generation
  m1. Thomas Lyster of Arnoldsbigging and Westby Hall (bur 31.03.1598)
  m2. William Pratt
8.+ other issue - Rowland, daughter
This was probably the Sir Richard who had the following liaison.
