We have three Walton families in our tree, two at Alston on the Holmes side and the other at Millom on the Armstrong side. There were a lot of Waltons in the Alston area, because of this we are only including details we are sure of.

Joseph Walton was a lead mining agent from Alston. He married Mary Cameron at Strontian, Argyll, Scotland in 1821. The marriage record describes him as an agent to the Strontian Lead Mining Co.
Joseph and Mary had a daughter, Mary, born in 1824 at Scotstown, Strontian. Mary did not marry, she worked as a housekeeper in Alston.
Joseph and Mary had five more children, all born at Alston:
Sarah, born in 1826, married John Nicholson at Alston in 1846. She died at Hudgill Rigg, Nenthall in 1859
Samuel Alexander, born in 1827, was a miner and mining agent. He moved to Argyll, Scotland, where he married Mary McNiven in 1859. They had six children that we know of, some of them were in Cumberland in the 1881 census, but we have found no trace of Samuel and Mary since the 1871 census.
Henry, born in 1829 – he was a miner in the 1841 census.
Joseph, born in 1831, he married Sarah Martindale in 1855 and was a lead miner, mining agent, and then a mining engineer. Joseph and Sarah had four children. Joseph died in at Alston in 1907.
Duncan, born in 1834, married twice. He had three children with his first wife, who we have yet to name. Duncan was a widower in the 1871 census. He married Elizabeth Parmley in 1873 and had another son. Duncan was a lead miner and later a farmer. He died in 1917.
To date we are unable to say whose son Joseph was. It appears that he may have died before the 1841 census as his wife Mary was on her own with the children. Mary was listed as a widow in the 1851 census.
