THOMAS Horton, IMMIGRANT, AND ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF SPRINGFIELD, MASS., 1636.

Thomas Horton, once thought to be a brother of Barnabas Horton [now accepted] who settled in the eastern end of Long Island, (NY), 1640, was born in England, 1602.

From Barks Landed Gentry, vol.1,pg.345, (1)William of Barkisland or Bark Island Hall, who purchased in the 15th year of the reign of Charles I. the estate of Howroyde, was born 1576, (2)his brother, Joseph, born 1578.

Thomas Horton was the son of Joseph, born 1602.

Thomas Horton, who had married in England, Mary Eddy, came to America in the ship "Mary and John", 1632-33.

They sojourned at Windsor, Connecticut, two or three years, where their first son, Jeremiah, was born. They were educated people, the report says. Their signatures are still to be seen in the "Pyncheon Papers" that have to do with the land purchase from the Indians.

Thomas Horton was one of the founders of Springfield, Mass.; was witness and signer of the Indian Deed; was town officer and proprietor. His lands are minutely described in History of Springfield, Mass., by Mason Green, pg.45: A map is shown, minor matters of record in the same show that Thomas Horton was party to a trivial suit at law with one Mirick. Another entry shows that his levy for ministerial support was L1. He died 1641, before he had time to make much history.

From "Pioneers of Massachusetts 1636-1736" by Pope, pg.231, there is:

"Robert Ashley, proprietor of Springfield, Mass., town officer and keeper of an ordinary (tavern), made marriage contract with Widow Mary Horton, Aug. 7, 1641, who was possessed of much property and guardian of the children of Thomas Horton."

It is explained that the women in those times were not safe without male protection and also that they were fewer in number than the men and therefore in much demand. There is record of further allotment of land to Widow Mary Horton.

Thomas Horton left three sons: Jeremiah, born 1636; Thomas, born 1638; John, born 1640.

There were other children of Mary Horton Ashley. The children of Thomas Horton are likely to have been scattered as they grew up and were found in other localities...Braintree; Milton; Reheboth; Charleston; Dorchester; and Templeton whowrecords of Hortons in church and historical documents. One of them of a later gneeration is recorded as the heaviest taxpayer and man of affairs in his community.

The Arms claimed by this House are given below, and were obtained from the Heraldic College, London, England, by us in 1928.

This Arms design was granted and confirmed, 1725, to Anne, daughter and co-heir of Thomas Horton of Barkisland in the west riding of County York, and to her descendants and the other descendants of her great grandfather, William, of Barkisland, as follows: Gules, a lion rampant, within a bordeure engrailed argent, charged on the shoulder with a boarhead, couped, azure, and crest, a rose, gules, seeded barbed, and sorrounded with two laurel branches, proper. The grant goes on to recite that Anne descended from the family of Horton of Horton, in the parish of Bradford, who were seated there in the times of Eadward I. (early English king, A.D. 890) and that the arms appear to have been in Barkisland Hall, Howroyde House and Sowerby, all in the parish of Halifax. (From report of Heraldic College, London, England, 1928.)

As a matter of history, Anne Horton, the heiress (above) married the Duke of Cumberland. The Cumberland River and Mountains were named for the Duke of Cumberland in 1766.

In 1909 there was about to be published at Blooimfield, NJ, a record of Thomas Horton, the immigrant to Springfield, Mass., 1636, and the posterity of same. It was compiled by Marcus Nelson Horton, one of the descendants of Thomas. It seems that he died before it was finished. It is believed that the data gathered and arranged by him is yet in existence. Every effort has been made, without success, to bring it to light. Future historians of Thomas Horton may yet accomplish it. Matereial is being collected and added to the recvords of a branch of the family of Thomas Horton by Mr. Guy B. Horton, Montpelier, VT.
The line briefly is: "Guy, Brent, Andrew, Alva, Aaron, Joseph, David, Thomas I.

Mary Eddy was born in , Nayland, Suffolk County, England. She died on 19 Sep 1683 in Springfield, Springfield, Hampden County, Mass.. She married Thomas Horton in , Middlesex County, Mass.. The marriage ended in divorce.

A birtdate of 10 March, 1625 is recorded in some places. If Mary EDDY married Thomas Horton in England and came to America on the ship "Mary and John" in 1632/33 she must have been born near to 1600-1610.
