Poulten Early Origins



The surname Poulten was first found in Cheshire where Roger, a Norman Baron, held Poulton Lancelyn as under tenant from Osbert FitzTezzo and the time of the Domesday Book in 1086. Conjecturally, the Poultons are descended from Roger de Poulton. A branch of the family was later established in Desborough, Northamptonshire. " The church is an ancient cruciform structure, with a good tower surmounted by a spire, and contains in the chancel a monument to the ancient family of Pulton, who for fourteen generations held the lordship of the place: of this family, Ferdinando Pulton, an eminent lawyer, who compiled the statutes at large from the time of Magna Charta to the sixteenth of James the First, was born here, and lies buried in the chancel."
