The full history of


Describing the varying fortunes of this extensive Lancashire family over 850 years

Written and published by Edmund R. Heaton

The ancestors of all today's Heatons came originally from the North of England, many of them from a small area in the County of Lancashire. The publication of this book presents a major opportunity to study the detailed history of this family, tracing the main stem from its earliest beginnings in the 12th century up to its latest ramifications at the end of the 20th century. Over this period, they were lords of the manor, knights of the realm, clergy, lawyers, merchants, yeoman farmers, industrial entrepreneurs, managers, and workers on the land and in industry.

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.
