Notes for JOHN DE MELTON: I AM NOT A GENEALOGIST!!! I do not claim to be a professional or one that bases his findings on pure fact! I started researching my maternal line about seven years ago and when I was injured at work and was unable to work for three years I found a lot of time on my hands and became intrigued with the Melton's. I began going to the library in Carlsbad, California and spending every day there. Collecting everything that had to do with the surname Melton. I also found many researchers that were willing to share their lines with me and through time I combined them with each other and what I had found to compile this report. Many of the lines in this report are works of others and I claim NO proof of their connection with the other lines. I guess what I am trying to say is this! I compiled this data on purely speculation of the possibilities of a connection with each other. I never had any intention of compiling it into a book format until I was contacted by so many researchers asking me to do so. I want to make it perfectly clear that the only line that I myself tried to document was my own line and is marked in the report by ** . All other lines are compiled data that I had and may or may not have any fact. Please use this report/book only as a guide in your own research! The compilation of this data was only done so that I could share everything that I had found on the Melton/Milton's with others, and to let them find the facts!


Children of JOHN DE MELTON are:


3. ii. RICARDUS DE MELTON, b. Bet. 1300 - 1350. 4. iii. JOAN DE MELTON, b. Abt. 1324; d. Abt. 1380.
