Wolfath or Wolfaith or Wolfric or Wolfrid FitzIvon of Hatton (a temp William I who r. 1066-1087)
There are a number of differences on this family between our Main Sources: Visitation, Ormerod & Wotton. We have tried to find the 'best compromise' between what they show but this has unavoidably involved some speculation. We took into consideration our concern that Visitation shows more generations than we think likely. To minimise the risk of our obscuring further research, we have tried to include the key parts of what each of the Main Sources reports.
1. William de Hatton of Hatton this generation omitted by Wotton
  m. Emma
  A. Robert de Hatton of Hatton
  m. Margaret or Eleanor Crispin (dau/heir of Sir Gilbert de Crispin) named Margaret by Visitation & Wotton, Eleanor by Ormerod

  m. _ de Ville (dau of Sir Hugh de Ville)
  a. Sir Geffrey Hatton of Hatton
  m. Matilda Harthull (dau of Sir Edwin Harthull or Harthill or Herthull)
  Visitation shows the eldest son as ...
  (1) Sir Hugh Hatton of Hatton
m. Nichola Boydell (dau of Sir William Boydell (Boidell) or Bordelll)
  Visitation shows only one son, William (m. Agnes Dutton) father of Simon father of William father of Adam father of Beatrix. This seems to be too many generations. We follow Ormerod.
  (A) William Hatton of Hatton
  m. Agnes Dutton (dau of Sir Geoffrey Dutton)
  (i) Adam Hatton of Hatton
m. Matilda Bretargh (dau of Sir Hugh Bretargh)
  (a) Beatrix Hatton

  ((A)) Adam Hatton of Great Aldersey - continued below
  m. Jone or Catharine Hellesby (dau of Sir William Hellesby)
  (2) Sir Roger (or Ralph) Hatton
  Ormerod identifies the eldest son as Ralph and shows him married to Elizabeth, dau of Sir Piers Normanville, but does not follow his line. Wotton names just one child of Sir Geffery, Sir Roger who m. a dau of Sir Peers Normanville. Provisionally, we follow Visitation in showing Roger as 2nd son and naming his wife ...
m. Maud Normanville (dau of Sir Piers Normanville)
  (A) Ralfe Hatton
  m. Margery Linsey (dau of Simon Linsey)
  (i) Sir Hugh Hatton
