The site includes all people with the surname Hayton, and their immediate families, that I have found throughout Scotland and the counties of Northumberland, Durham, Cumberland and Westmorland, plus the parts of Lancashire north of Lancaster, living before the start of the twentieth century. There are about 5000 people that were given the surname Hayton from birth, together with about 3000 people that gained the Hayton surname through marriage or were otherwise connected to the Hayton families. There are also about 800 people on my mother's side of the family, on the Goodchild and Grout lineages, mainly from Suffolk and Essex.
In researching the data for this site, my thanks go in particular to Ken Hayton, sadly now deceased, who contributed much early research into the Haytons in the former county of Cumberland; and also to my second cousin, Jean Davis, for much of the research on the Goodchild pedigree.
Other sites that contain linked people to the Hayton families and may be of interest are:

and the Ostle family tree at this link http://ostle.dunmore.org
There is no login required to view the great majority of the data on this site. Only the details of a small number of living people are hidden from casual visitors.
I hope that you find the site useful.
