Families covered: Chatterton of Castle Mahon, Chadderton of Chadderton, Chadderton (Chaderton or Chatterton) of Moston, Chatterton (Chadderton or Chaderton) of Nuthurst

The following comes from VCH (Lancashire, vol 5, 'The parish of Prestwich with Oldham: Chadderton') which identifies the following Geoffrey as son or grandson of Richard de Trafford of Trafford & Stretford.
Geoffrey de Chadderton (d before 1320)
1. William de Chadderton of Chadderton (a 1332)
  A. Geoffrey de Chadderton of Chadderton
  i. Margery de Chadderton
  m. (by 1367) John Radcliffe (natural son of the rector of Bury)
VCH (Lancashire, vol 4, 'Townships: Moston') reports that Geoffrey, son (sb grandson? see continuation) of Richard de Trafford, had another son Geoffrey. That source provides the following but adds that there may be "a missing link" although that may have meant missing information rather than a missing generation.
2. Geoffrey de Chadderton of Moston (a 1340)
  A. Roger de Chadderton of Moston (a 1320, 1340)
  i. Roger de Chadderton of Moston & Nuthurst, Lancashre
  Roger is probably the ancestor of the later Chaddertons/Chattertons of Nuthurst. VCH reports that "The family remained in possession (of Moston/Nuthurst) until the beginning of the 17th century, producing one noteworthy man, William Chadderton, warden of Mancester and Bishop of Chester in 1579, later translated to Lincoln. In 1623 Edmund Chaddeton sold his estate ...". The following connection appears to be merited.
