Seeking information about a William LAWTON who settled in Middletown, N.J., in the late 1600s.
He emigrated from England to Newport, Rhode Island, in the 1660s and shortly afterwards moved to New Jersey where he began using the name LAYTON. I would like to know his place of birth in England and his date of birth and any other details about his life. He is believed to have been a widower when he arrived in Newport with a son. After arriving in New Jersey, he is said to have married Violet BLACKMAN of New York, N.Y. Amongst their friends were members of the DRUMMOND family.
