About Margaret Orton

According to pg 25 of The Orton Genealogy, there was no issue from Mary Tudor's marriage to John Orton, and therefore this profile appears to be misplaced, and Margaret appears to be the daughter of his first wife whose name is unknown but is speculated to be a Hawley:


(All the following are from Orton, Edward. An Account of the Descendants of Thomas Orton of Windsor, Connecticut, 1641 (Principally in the Male Line): http://www.ctgenweb.org/county/cohartford/files/misc/ortonpart1.html)

"John Orton, born in 1647, reached the age at which the young men of the colonies usually married, viz., twenty-one to twenty-six years, about 1670. He married his first wife about this date. She bore him two children, Thomas and Margaret, and died about 1685-6, her name appearing in the church records of 1685." pg.23

"As to who the first wife was, I have no knowledge, but I infer that she was a Hawley, or a connection of the Hawley family from the fact that Lieutenant Joseph Hawley of Farmington, in an exchange of property with John Orton's son, Thomas, about 1710, includes in the "consideration" which he acknowledges, "the love, good-will, and affection which I bear to my friend and kinsman" (Thomas Orton)." pg 23

"We do not know the name of his [John Orton, b. 1647] first wife, the date of his marriage, or the exact dates of the births of his two older children, Thomas and Margaret." pg 22

The two oldest children are listed in Table 1 on pg 26 of the hardbound copy of this book
