The Borton family in our tree were from Aynho, Northamptonshire. John Borton, born in 1752, was the son of William and Mary Borton. He married Ann Dry in 1783 at Aynho. Ann was the daughter of William and Ann Dry, also of Aynho.
John and Ann Borton had a large family in Aynho, their eldest son was Thomas, my ancestor, who was born in 1783. Thomas married Mary Terry at Aynho in 1803. Mary was the daughter of Joseph Terry and Rose Stears, who married at Aynho in 1772. Thomas and Mary has five children before Mary died aged 38 in 1813. Thomas remarried in 1822, to Ann French, and it is possible that he then emigrated to Canada.
William, Thomas and Mary’s second son, had a large family of thirteen children, all born in Aynho, where William was a farm labourer, as were many of the family.
Mark Borton, William and Mary’s son, born in 1831, married Elizabeth Lee at Whaddon, Buckinghamshire in 1849. Mark and Elizabeth had eleven children, all born in Aynho. Elizabeth died in 1871, shortly after the birth of a child. Mark died in 1877 following a fall from a ladder, aged 45.
Mark and Elizabeth’s son Joseph Borton, born in 1859, was my great great grandfather. He married Henrietta Emma Webster in 1879 at Harboro’ Magna, Warwickshire, and they too had a large family – according to the 1911 census, they had 16 children, of whom 10 were still living.
Joseph and Henrietta’s daughter Sarah, born in 1881, married Jack Adams in 1907.
An interesting entry in the 1841 census was that of a John Borton, who we believe was Thomas’s brother, in the County Gaol at Northampton. John’s wife Susanna was at home in Aynho with their children and was a lacemaker, as indeed were a number of the women in the family. Many of the Bortons were agricultural workers, gardeners and grooms.
A tale was passed down the family that one of the Borton grandmothers was French – interesting but as yet unproved! Or indeed it may have referred to the name French.
