^TTHIS pamplilet is issued for two reasons. First, as a 
^^ medium for setting forth sundry notes regarding the 
Nortons, gathered in various ways. Second, in hopes that 
more interest in genealogy will be created in the 
different branches of the family and that all will work for 
a Norton Genealogy that shall be as complete as possible. 
One correspondent suggests a Family Association, with 
yearly meetings, etc. 

I hereby express my thanks for notes and data to 
Miss Mary E. Brooks of Torrington, Conn., (custodian of 
all records compiled by her grandfather, Lewis M. Norton, 
who in his day (died 1860) possessed more information 
regarding the Nortons than any other living man) , also to 
Miss Frances A. Norton and Mr. George C. Norton of 
Buffalo, N. Y. 

The plus (t) mark indicates that I possess data 
regarding descendants and would be glad to hear from any 
one interested. 

WALTER W. NORTON. 

Lakeville, Conn., August 1909. 



The History of the Norton family begins at the time of 
the Norman Conquest when Le Signeur de Norville crossed 
over to England with King William the Conqueror, 
September 29, 1066, and was his Constable. 

The name at that time being Norville which in French 
signified North Village; the name being changed long 
afterwards to Nor-ton, which in English is, North-town. It 
is supposed that all the families of this name in England, 
Ireland and America were derived from one man.

John Norton born about 1622 probably at London, 
3rd son of Richard Norton and Ellen Rowley, daughter of 
Thomas, emigrated to America, and as far as we know 
came first to Bran ford, Conn, ^ His name firet appears on 
the records there on the first page of the first book July 7, 
1646, in a list among whom lands were to be divided. 
These were records of the early acts if not the first acts of 
the proprietors, or planters as the}^ were commonly called. 
His name appears repeatedly to 1648 in similar lists. The 
first inhabitants of Branford were from Wethersfield, Conn., 
and from Southampton, L. I., and the settlement is said to 
have been begun in 1644, but the laying out of the lands 
was not begun before 1646. John Norton removed from 
Branford to Hartford about 1659. 

The description of his Hartford property seems to be 
worth an insertion in this place. It is on "The original 
distribution of the lands of Hartford, page 452 and 455." 
Sept. 29, 1659 he made a purchase in Hartford of Jasper 
Gunn - - - of several pieces of land, ''and housing". He 
probably left Branford at about that time - - - but was 
before a proprietor in the new township of Farmington. 

"Land in Hartford upon the river of Connecticut, 
belonging to John Norton and his heirs f()rever, - - - one 
parcel of which he bought of Jasper Gunn, containing 
by estimation one acre and two roods, be it more or less, 
together with a house and barn standing thereon ; wdiich 
parcel of land abutts on the highway leading from the old 
ox-pasture to the mill, on the west side of land appointed 
for a burying place and on Charles Fox's land on the East 
and on John Stedman's land on the South - - - and on 
O. (0 zias) Goodwin's land on the North. 



Next are described seven pieces more, a part of wliicli 
was on the "East side of the great river," - - containing 
in all about 35 acres. The next and last piece is thus 
described, • - "More one parcel of wood land which he 
bought of Jasper Gunn, lying in the ox-pasture, containing 
by estimation thirty acres, be it more or less, abutting on 
John Pantry's land on the South and on a highway lying 
in that ox-pasture on the East on Mill river on the West." 

"Those parcels of land were purchased of Jasper Gunn, 
and passed over to John Norton by a deed of sale Sept. 29, 
1629 - - but it should have been 59, - - which deed was 
witnessed by Messrs. John Steel, and John Sumor. 
Recorded this 15th day of Feb. 1666, per me - - John 
Allyn Register." 

"These parcels of land above written are all sold to 
Ensign Jarred Spencer, and stand recorded to him in the 
445th page of this book. John Allyn Register." 

On the page above referred to is a deed from John 
Norton - - "Land in Hartford upon the river of Connecti- 
cut, belonging to Ensign Jarred Spencer and his heirs for- 
ever, which he purchased of John Norton. Then follows 
a description of all the above said pieces. "February 1666, 
John Norton ordered me to record these parcels above 
written to Ensign Jarred Spencer he having sold them to 
him. John Allyn, Register." 

There is next following a receipt signed by John 
Norton. "These presents witness that whereas Jarred 
Spencer of Hartford was indebted unto me John Norton of 
Farmington the sum of one hundred twenty-two pounds 
and ten shillings, for certain parcels of land and housing 
situated at Hartford", etc., This was dated Feb. 23, 1664. 

With respect to the question - - When did John 
Norton remove to Farmington? - - the best evidence to be 

8 



found ill the record of the baptism of his son Samuel "May 
30, 1659. 

On the Proprietor's Book in Farmington his name 
appears among the 84 proprietors in the First Division of 
lands - - and onward. The town was hicorpoiated 1645. 
There can be little doubt that he was a proprietor there 
several years before his settlement in Farmington even 
possibly before he removed to Branford. Made free at 
Hartford May 21, 1664. He was then of Farmington. 
Joined the church in Farmington in October 1661. 

He married first Dorothy who died 

in Branford, Jan. 24, 1652. Married second Elizabeth 

who died in Branford, Nov. 6, 1657, 
and third Elizabeth Clark, who died in Farmington Nov., 
8, 1702, said to be sister of John Clark of Saybrook. He 
died in Farmington Nov. 5, 1709.

at South Canaan, Conn., John P. Walton, b. Nov. 5, 
1765, at Pomfret, Conn., son of Dr. Wm. Walton and

ii Sarah, b. Apr. 28, 1766, m. John Elliott. 

Rev. John Elliott, b.Aug. 24,1768, in Killingworth, 
Conn., (now Clinton) son of Dea. Geo. Elliott and 
Hannah (Ely) Elliott, grandson of Rev. Jared Elliott, 

13 



great grandson of Rev. Joseph Elliott and the g g 
grandson of Rev. John Elliott, the apostle to the 
Indians. Dr. Elliott made a deep impression upon 
the people of Madison. "He had the dignity, gi-avity, 
sedateness and general bearing of the gentleman of 
the olden time. He was precise in speech and 
methodical in all his movements." Dr. Todd says: 
"He was a tall, very thin and slim man. His legs 
always draped in black stockings and small clothes 
seemed too slender to hold him up. His manners 
and bearing were most gentlemanly. He was a fine 
scholar, a genuine lover of study, a capital preacher, 
a wise and shrewd man, etc. He was graduated at 
Yale College in 1786, was a Congregational clergy- 
man, received degree of D. D. from Yale, of which 
College he was a trustee about twelve years. Settled 
as a minister at Madison, Conn., Nov. 2, 1791, ad- 
mitted 335 persons to the church, and continud such 
ministry until liis death, Dec. 17, 1834.

cousin. General Elisha Sterling of Salisbury, eldest 
son of Capt. William and Jeremiah (Sill) Sterling, 
and died July 9, 1841. 

Gen. Elisha Sterling, oldest son of Capt. William 
Sterling of Lyme, was married to Alma Canfield, 
daughter of the Hon. John Canfield of Sharon, Conn., 
Jan. 1791. "Gen. Sterling, born in Lyme, Nov. 5, 
1763, was graduated at Yale College in 1787. That 
he sustained a good standing, is evinced bj' his 
having an honorable share in the Commencement 
exercises. Immediately after his graduation, he 
assumed charge of an Academy, then recently 
established in Shai'on, and during the two years 
it was under his tuition and management, it became 
very thoroughly established and popularly known. 
While at the head of the Academy, he pursued the 
study of Law with the Hon. John Canfield, and was 
admitted to the Bar in 1789 and immediately opened 
an office in Salisbury. He was very fortunate in his 
place of settlement, and soon found himself engaged 
in lucrative practice, which he pursued with much 
industry. He was, at an early pei-iod, appointed 
Attorney for the State, and annually re-appointed 

14 



for many years, until a political change in the 
County Court led to a change. The propriety of his 
management as a public prosecutor was never ques- 
tioned, even by his political opponents. In addition 
to the office of State's Attorney, he for nine years 
held the office of Judge of Probate for the District 
of Sharon, an office then depending upon the annual 
appointment of the Legislature and until for a like 
cause above mentioned, he was required to give 
place to another of different political opinions and 
the latter office he held two or three years after he 
ceased to be of the then healthy political faith."— 
(From "Lights of the Litchfield Bar.") Twice he 
represented the 17th Senatorial District in the Senate 
and for several years represented the Town in the 
General Assembly. In 1793 he was made Captain 
and in 1800 Brigade Major and Inspector. In 1809 he 
was made Colonel and in 1814 while in command of 
his Regiment at Groton, he received his commission 
as Brigadier General. In 1815 he was made Major 
General of Connecticut Militia. 

Alma Oanfield, wife of Gen. Sterling, born Dec. 30, 
1774, died March 11, 1830, and he married for his 
second wife, Mrs. Sarah Norton Elliott, the widow 
of the Rev. Dr. John Elliott, of Madison, Conn. 
Gen. Sterling died Dec. 3, 1836.

Thomas Norton came to Gnilford with Rev. Mr. Whit- 
field in 1639, was a signer of the Plantation Covenant, and 
served the town as its miller until his death in 1648. He 
is stated to have been a church warden of Mr. Whitfield's 
parish at Ockley in Surrey, a few miles south of London, 
England, and has been thought to have been connected 
with the Nortons of Sharpenhow, Bedfordshire, (New Eng. 
Register, Vol. XIII., p., 225) Dea. Lewis M. Norton of 
Goshen, Conn, identified him with with Thomas, son of 
Wm. Norton and his second wife Denice Cholmsly, and put 
the date of his birth as about 1582. His home lot in 
Guilford contained two acres and was on the west side of 
Crooked Lane (now State Street.) This lot fell to his son 
John, on Thomas Norton's death, and afterwards was 
occupied by Lieut. William Seward, his son-in-law. 
Thomas Norton also owned seventeen and one-half of 
"upland in the plains" and a parcel of one and one-half 
acres of marsh land by the sea-side. His wife was named 
Grace and her maiden name is supposed to have been Wells.

The covenant made by Mr. Whitfield's company and 
signed on shipboard was as follows: "We whose names are 
hereunder written intending by God's gracious permission 
to plant ourselves in New England, and, if it may be, in 
the southerly part about Quinnipiac: we do faithfully 
promise each to each, for ourselves and families, and those 
that belong to us, that we will, the Lord assisting us, sit' 
down and join ourselves together in one entire plantation ; 
and to be helpful each to the other in every common work, 
according to every man's ability and as need shall require; 
and we promise not to desert or leave each other or the 
plantation, but with the consent of the rest or the greater 
part of the company who have entered into this engage- 
ment. As for our gathering together in a church way, 
and the choice of officers and members to be joined 
together in that way, we do refer ourselves until such time 
as it shall please God to settle us in our plantation. 

In witness whereof we subscribe our hands the first 
day of June 1639.

Nicholas Norton, born, 1610; died 1690; wife 
Elizabeth settled, first, in Weymouth, Mass., later 
on Martha's Vineyard, Mass., (Munsell's American 
Ancestry, Vol. X, p. 88.) That he was in Wey- 
mouth in 1639 is apparent from the following : 
"Nicholas (Norton) , Weymouth, bought Feb. 20, 
1639, of Richard Standerwick of Broadway, Somer- 
set county, clothier, all the cattle in the hands of 
Mr. Hull in New England (Plymouth Colony 
record) (Pope's Pioneers of Mass., p. 332) The 
records of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Vol. IV, 
part 1, show that Nicholas was living as late as May 
15, 1657, in Weymouth. Nicholas allotted in Wey- 
mouth : "six acres in mill ffield" and "Five acres 
adoyning to John Whitman's greate lot;." (History 
of Weymouth, Mass., p. 263.) A great lot was 
assigned to Nicholas, Feb. 3, 1651. This lot was 
situated on the east side of the Great Pond (History 
of Weymouth pp. 281-82.) July 23, 1645: the 
town ordered : All hogs also all Pigs over 8 weeks 
yoked except Nicholas Norton's," etc. Nicholas 
residence is Here referred to as being opposite the 
great swamp. In 1646 he was a constable and 
collector of rates (taxes) . He was made a rater 
(or assessor) Nov. 26, 1651 and in 1656 was reim- 
bursed for the loss of an ox (Records of the Mass., 
Bay Colony, Vol. IV, part 1, p. 303.) There was 
found this year due Nicholas for keeping

thetowu mill, 3,500 feet, 2,000 feet, 4,000 feet are 
specified. He was wood ward July 14, 16o8 and 
received in 16G0, £1 from the town for kilhng a 
wolf (From records of Weymouth, Mass.) The 
Indian chief Wanepetuck and three other chiefs 
executed a deed without date conveying land m 
Weymouth to Nicholas Norton , and sixty other 
persons which was confirmed by the Court m the 
vear 1685 Land was allotted to Nicholas m

arytheO- 1681-82; "whereas we James Allen and 
Thomas Mayhew was appointed by the freeholders 
of Tisbury to Layout unto Those men swamp or Low

Allen being the last upon that book iTisbury Town 
Records, page 15). When this grant was made 
Nicholas had probably lived on Martha's Vineyard 
about twenty years. Both Nicholas and wite 
Elizabeth died in 1690. The will of Nicholas

George Norton, born in England, emigrated with 
Higginson to Salem in 1629. Took the freeman's oath 
May 14, 1634. There is some evidence that he was a 
carpenter by trade. Was connected with a company wlio 
obtained leave from General Court to settle Jeffrey's Creek 
in 1640, afterwards called Manchester. Removed to 
Gloucester about 1641. Was representative of that town 
1642-3-4. Moved back to Salem 1644. Was dismissed 
from church at Gloucester to church at Wen ham Sept. 21, 
1645. Married Mary . He died 1659.

George in. second Mercy Gillett(widoM')of Windsor. 
The town of Suffield agreed with George Norton and 
Richard Austin 1695 to make all the windows for 
the minister's house at eighteen pence per light and 
to pay for the same in provision and flax. The 
early records of the town of Ipswich are stated 
to be very imperfect, and mutilated, there being but 
few records of births, deaths and marriages prior to 
1680. The Church records of the first parish have 
been destroyed or cannot be found to about 1775. 
It is evident that the first five children of this George 
Norton were born in Ipswich, but that he afterwards 
became a settler at Suffield, Conn. From the rec- 
ords of the doings of the Committee for the man- 
agement of Stony Brook Plantation (Suffield) 
it appears that a grant of 60 acres of land (15 
acres of it on High Street) was made to George 
-Norton Sept. 14, 1674. The settlement of the 
plantation was broken up in 1675 on account of the 
war with the Indians commonly known as Philip's 
war; but was commenced again at its close in 
1676-7. The name of George Norton occurs as an 
inhabitant there as early as Sept. 25, 1677. He is 
called Ensign Norton in the list of voters March 9, 
1682. He was chosen one of the selectman in 1693 
and was sent a representative to the general Court in 
Boston the same year, at which time he is called 

54 



Captain Norton. In the Probate records in Hamp- 
shire, Book 3, pages 36—37, is found the settlement 
of the estate of this Capt. George Norton, dated March 
31 , 1698. Mercy was his widow — his sons: George, 
Thomas, Nathaniel and Freegrace. His daughters: 
Sarah, Alice, Mary, Abigail, Joanna and Elizabeth 
in the above order: Thomas, Nathaniel and Alice 
were then of Ipswich He d. 1696, Nov 15, (Notes
