Walton : The ending -ton comes from the Old English/Norse -tun
which designated a town or settlement. Walton was the 'walled'
town or the 'wood' town and is an English Place name.

The information on these pages is the direct result of several geographically-distant researchers (England, Australia & USA) sharing their work and information. Each of us had our own limited collection of family lore but together, WOW! 

The research and cooperation continue, so watch for updates as new information is found and shared.

Proof yet again that genealogy truly is the "world's largest interactive jigsaw puzzle." No piece is too small or insignificant -- when combined with other "bits" the results can be astonishing!  Genealogy people are the best!!

As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with seven wives.
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits;
Kits, cats, sacks and wives -
How many were going to St Ives?
anonymous


There can be little doubt that this jingle refers to someone on
his way to one of the great St Ives fairs. St Ives is situated
on the banks of the river Great Ouse, near Huntingdon in
Cambridgeshire England. It has its roots in Saxon history,
although it achieved fame in medieval times for its international
fairs. Today it is a quiet market town with a population of
approximately 16,000 and covering an area of just over 1000
hectares.

My great grandfather emigrated to the US from England in 1906.  His family joined him in Battle Creek MI in 1907 - these poems were written about the year he spent in Michigan alone, earning the funds for his immediate & extended family to join him:

Alone in a Foreign Land

I sit in a pleasant place,
Green fields on every side;
I'm thinking of your face
Across the ocean wide.
What though the scene if fair,
Or beautiful and grand;
My darling is not there,
I'm alone in a foreign land.

A few short weeks ago
I left old England's shore;
For full well did I know
That we were getting poor.
And so, I said good-bye,
And shook each friendly hand;
Then sailed away to try
My luck in a foreign land.

My heart it years for thee,
My wife, my own sweet Nell;
I crave again to see
The face I love so well.
I long each child to see,
And touch each little hand;
Alas I still alone must be,
Out here in a foreign land.

Alone, but not for long,
For soon you'll come to me.
I'll sing a joyful song,
The week you cross the sea.
Then, reunited once again,
We'll wander hand in hand,
O'er greensward field and shady lane,
Content, in a foreign land.



Absent Loved Ones

I used to have a loving wife
To share my home with me;
But now I lead a lonely life,
For she's across the sea.

I used to have some children dear,
I loved to watch them play;
Their voice no longer can I hear,
Three thousand miles away.

But soon my wife and children dear,
Will be again with me;
For soon they'll sail to join me here
Across the deep blue sea.
