Origins of surname

The family name came from a settlement of the same name, derived from the old English horh = mud and tun = settlement, suggesting that the name was given to someone who lived in a farm with muddy soil

Early records

The first family to settle in Jersey was that of Mathieu Horton and Jeanne Bisson, who had seven children baptised in St Peter from 1715 onwards. There is no record of their marriage in the island. For the first 100 years the family was largely confined to St Peter.
