The following Houghton genealogical indexes include all of the known descendants of Ralph and John Houghton of Lancaster, MA and of John Houghton of New Jersey (representing half of the individuals in the Houghton Surname Project Database). My private Houghton Database contains substantially more data (with pictures, census data, bibliographies, and extensive source citations) than the Birth, Marriage, and Death information given on this website. There are 91205 Houghton descendants in the database ( with 90883 Houghton surname individuals, 2387 immigrant Houghtons, and 25,389 descendants of as yet unconnected/orphan Houghton individuals, and 8564 Haughton surname individuals).
