  • The antiquity of the Horton family is well-proven. Long before the time of Henry Larey, Earl of Lincoln, who died in 1310, Robert De Horton manumitted a bondman to his manor of Horton. The name Horton in the Anglo-Saxon language means an inclosure or garden of vegetables. The name is evidently of Latin origin and has been known in England ever since the conquest. The first of the family in America of whom there is authentic record came from England in 1633-38. Thomas, Jeremiah and Barnabas Horton were among the early emigrants. Tradition says they were brothers.
  • ( II ) Barnabas Horton, son of Joseph Horton. was born in Mouseley, Leicestershire. England, July 13, 1600. He came to New England in the ship "Swallow," Captain Jeremy Horton, master and owner, in 1635-38, landed at Hampton, Massachusetts, went to New Haven, Connecticut, 1640, with wife Mary and sons Joseph and Benjamin. In October, 1640, he made a permanent settlement in what is now Southold, Long Island, New York, where his last eight children were born; the first two were born in England. Children: Joseph, of whom further ; Benjamin, married Anna Budd, sister of Jane, who was wife of Joseph Horton ; Caleb, married Abigail Hallock ; Joshua, married Mary Tuthill ; Jonathan, married Bethia Wells ; Hannah, married Barnabas Terrill ; Sarah, married Joseph Conklin ; Mary, married Joseph Budd, brother of Jane; Mercy, married Christopher Youngs; Abigail, married Charles Booth.
  • (Ill) Joseph (2). eldest son of Barnabas Horton, was born in Mouseley, England, about 1635, and was brought to New England by his parents. He resided in Southold near his father for several years after his marriage, but in 1664 moved to Rye, Westchester county, New York, where his father-in-law, John Budd, had previously settled.
