The book also contains details of branches of the family now to be found in the USA, Wales and Yorkshire, and as well as being of general interest provides an exceptional opportunity for those who believe they have a Heaton connection to follow this up.
The way of life portrayed here, as the family fortunes rose and fell against the background of national events, cannot fail to be of interest to those whose ancestors owned or worked the land, conducted their small family businesses and then moved into the early industrial enterprises where some failed and others succeeded.
