Families covered: Horton of Barkisland, Horton of Chadderton, Horton of Howroyde, Horton of Sowerby

Commoners identifies the arms of this family as "Gules a lion rampant, arg. charged on the shoulder with a boar's head couped az. within a bordure engrailed of the second". That indicates that there was no known connection with the family shown on Horton02.
