Poulton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Poulton family


The surname Poulton 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." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The markettown and parish of Poutlon-in-the-Fylde in Lancashire was an ancient family seat. "This place, called Poltun in the Domesday Survey, appears to have belonged, about the time of that survey, to the priory of Lancaster; and in the 27th of Edward I., Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, and others held Pulton in trust for the priory. In 1342, a family of the local name possessed a small quantity of land in the parish." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Kirby's Quest lists the following early entries for the family: Henry de Pulton, Somerset and

Walter de Pulton, Somerset. Both were listed as "1 Edward III," in other words, as "living there during the first year of the reign of King Edwrad III." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Dickinson, F.H., Kirby's Quest for Somerset of 16th of Edward the 3rd London: Harrison and Sons, Printers in Ordinary to Her Majesty, St, Martin's Lane, 1889. Print.
