Miles Heaton1

Birth*Miles Heaton was born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.1
Relationship Note*The relationship between Miles Heaton and Myles Haidan is unclear to us at this point. They may even be the same man. Each had a wife named Margaret and each had children with similar, almost identical names. They lived in the same place and, if not the same man, may have been father and son. Obviously, more research is needed.

Heaton Sources II wrote about Myles Heaton in Chapter 18, "Robert Heaton of Bucks County", Pennsylvania in the section of the chapter reserved for families and individuals who the author believed were not directly connected to the Robert Heaton (Yorkshire) branch of Heatons, but who had lived in the eastern Pennsylvania area about the same time -- or were Quakers, as the Yorkshire Heatons were. The author stated that he had "not been able to sort out these families."

Then, in Chapter 31, "Mid Atlantic Heatons", Miles Heaton was included with a large number of additional Heatons the source identified as Heatons who had lived in Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond that he had not been able to place with their correct families. Pennsylvania had the longest list and included Miles Heaton.1,2,3,4,5
Name VariationIt was suggested that Miles may have been his middle name.1
Name VariationHis surname was also spelled with variations of Haidan in many records.5
Residence*Miles was thought to have spent all of his life living near his place of birth, which was probably in that part of Westmoreland County that was set off as Washington County in 1781 and then was set off from Washington County as Greene County in 1796.1
Marriage*He married Margaret ______, probably in Washington County, Pennsylvania.1,5
Revolutionary War*Miles served in the Revolutionary War.1

John Heaton's three oldest sons, William, Benjamin and John, were also allotted to work on the same project. Then, on 26 October 1772, upon a petition of sundry residents, John Heaton, Moses Heaton, Richard Williams and Joseph Bonham, or any three of them, being first duly sworn, were ordered to view the way for a road to be opened from the Valentine Quarter on the Potowmack River to Farling Ball's mill and store and report to the court whether it may be convenient to the public to open and clear the way. John Heaton, Moses Heaton and Joseph Bonham made their report to the court on 27 November 1772, stating they had found that the most convenient way was to go with or near the Old Road as far as Leonard May's fence, and from there take a direct course by Moses Heaton's to the mill and store. The road was ordered to be opened and to be deemed as a public road. Moses Heaton was appointed surveyor of the project, and was ordered to have the road cleared and to keep it in repair according to the law3,4,5
Death*1777 and died in 1777 in Loudoun County. He was about 33 years of age and died leaving a widow and two children, a son John, and a daughter.2

(Daughter) Relocation1785When she was about 10 years of age, Nancy moved west with her parents and siblings to Pennsylvania where two of the Heaton brothers, John and Henry, had already settled, establishing their new home in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania, which would become Greene County in 1796.3
Marriage*She married, as his first wife, her 1st cousin Rees Hill, son of Robert Hill and Priscilla Bowen.5,6,2
Relocation*1820After leaving the Pennsylvania Legislature, about 1820, Nancy's husband Rees went to Frederick County, Virginia, where, over a period of years, he attempted to collect together the estate of their grandfather, Henry Bowen, and also the estates of two of their uncles, Ensign Rees Bowen and Sergeant Henry Bowen, who had died in the Revolutionary War. It is not known to us yet whether or not his wife Nancy and any of their children went with him to Virginia, or if he travelled the distance of about 165 miles alone. Did he commute between the two locations, or did he actually reside there?7
EstateFor a time, her husband's efforts were successful as he worked on the three estates of their relatives in Frederick County, Virginia. Eventually, though, he over-extended himself and got into financial straits. Nancy died during this time, and the litigation on the estates was still in the courts when Rees died more than twenty years later.7
Death*16 June 1828She died on 16 June 1828 in Greene County, Pennsylvania, at age 53.8,9

ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Father*Nathaniel Heaton4,1 b. 22 Dec 1602
Mother*Elizabeth Wight4,1 b. 2 Nov 1606
Birth*31 August 1639Nathaniel Heaton was born on 31 August 1639 in Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony,5,6,3
Baptism1 September 1639 and was baptized the next day on 1 September 1639 at First Church, Boston.5,7
Education*Nathaniel grew up in Boston and likely received some formal education.2
Relocation*1670 By 1670, he had moved to the village of Dedham, Suffolk County.2
Land Grant* In Dedham he was a freeman and was given a parcel of land, probably about 10 acres.2
Biographical Info* He was continuously a member of town councils and committees in both Dedham and Wrentham, and also became involved in local politics. He was the cosigner of many letters to the Governor General of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England) about local issues, and in the 1670s a group of residents, including Nathaniel, petitioned the King to divide Dedham into two villages, the second being Wrentham. On the copy of the signatures included in the Heaton Families, Nathaniel's signature appears prominently, its location fourth from the last.8
Occupation*Nathaniel was a farmer and husbandman his entire life.2
Marriage*He married Mary ______ in Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).2,9,3
Research NotesSeveral researchers have published reports indicating that Nathaniel's wife Mary's surname may have been "Minor". Some sources have gone so far as to identify her as Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas Minor and Grace Palmer, born on 5 May 1651 in New London, Connecticut.

Although we would love to know her actual identity, we know she was not that Mary. Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas and Grace Minor, died on 24 Jan 1659/60 at only eight years of age.

Heaton Families: 350 Years in America" speculated, without offering any source information, that Mary may have been related to John Maynard, also spelled "Minor", her husband's mother's third husband. Again, although Mary was probably the right age to have been one of John Maynard's missing daughters, without documentation, we don't know.10,11,12,2
Probate*30 January 1682The estate of Nathaniel's mother, Elizabeth Maynard, late of Boston, widow, deceased was opened for probate on 30 January 1682 in Boston, Suffolk County, and son Nathaniel Heaton and Cornelius Fisher, his deceased sister Leah's husband, both of Wrentham and identified as two of the deceased's sons, were given full power to administer her estate. They gave bond, and the next day submitted an inventory taken by John Marion Sr. and Robert Butcher that included both real and personal property valued at £110:04:03 in total.13
Will*27 December 1683When Nathaniel, as Executor, exhibited the will of his mother Elizabeth Maynard to the court on 27 December 1683, Mr. Edward Rawson and John Marion Sr. made oath that they were present when Elizabeth "Minor" signed her will, that it was written by Rawson and that she was of disposing mind.14
Relationship NoteMary may have been the daughter of Nathaniel Heaton and Mary ______. The Heaton Families identifies Mary as the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary Heaton, however neither the "English Ancestry of Nathaniel and James Heaton" article nor Roy Heaton's Family Pedigree Chart mentions a daughter named Mary. Both refer to only 6 children for the couple, not 7.2,15,3
Death*before 7 April 1714Nathaniel died before 7 April 1714 when administration was granted on his estate in Suffolk County. In 1714, he would have been age 74.2,5

Father*William Heaton1 b. 31 Jul 1567
Mother*Elizabeth Sedgwick1 b. 24 Feb 1569
Baptism*22 December 1602Nathaniel Heaton was baptized on 22 December 1602 in Habrough, Lincolnshire, England.1
Research Notes*Earlier research confused Nathaniel Heaton of the parish of Alford in Lincolnshire, England, and Nathaniel Heaton of Great Coates, also in Lincolnshire. Although it was eventually proved that the two Nathaniels were not the same person, the search led to the discovery of a common origin for our New England Heaton immigrants in Habrough, Lincolnshire.2
Marriage*21 April 1630He married, as her first husband, Elizabeth Wight, daughter of Robert Wight and Elizabeth Fulshaw, on 21 April 1630 in St. Wilfrid's Church, Alford, Lincolnshire, England. Heaton Families II reported that St. Wilfrid's Church in Alford was built in 1350 and was restored in 1867, and that according to Bruce Heaton who visited the site, Alford is a market town and was founded in 1283. Nathaniel and Elizabeth may have lived there after their marriage since their children were baptized there. 1630 was a notable year in that a major plague hit the town killing many of his residents.3,4,5,6
Relocation*after April 1634Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton moved shortly after April 1634 to London. They stayed there only briefly, probably in preparation for their emigration to New England.4
Immigration*18 September 1634Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), with their four children, sons Samuel and Jabez and daughters Leah and Mary in 1634. The family sailed aboard the ship Griffin, leaving England on 01 August 1634 and arriving in Boston on 18 September 1634 with about one hundred passengers and livestock.7,8,5
Religion*2 November 1634 On 2 November 1634, Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton, who was identified as a mercer, were admitted as members of the First Church of Boston. He held a number of lay offices in the church.9,5
Freeman*25 May 1636Having fulfilled his indentureship, Nathaniel was admitted a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 25 May 1636. This meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship, being free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote.5,10
Occupation*He soon became a shopkeeper in Boston.5
Land Grant*8 January 1637/38 On 8 January 1637/38, when the town of Boston honored an act approved in December 1635 granting the "then inhabitants" a houseplot, Nathaniel Heaton was granted twenty acres of land along Muddy Creek. His plot was eighty rods long, bounded by James Johnson and Edmund Jackson.10,5
Residence*Nathaniel built a house with a garden in Boston on the east side of Washington Street, between Milk Street and Bedford Street. He later acquired land up the hill toward Vernon Street. The family's neighbor James Johnson proved to be a lifelong friend to Nathaniel's wife, Elizabeth, through three widowhoods.5
Coroner Inquest*15 September 1640Nathaniel Heaton signed his name on 15 September 1640 as one of the twelve men who had examined the dead body of William Richards, and determined that Richards had hanged himself in Thomas Buttolph's outhouse.10
Land Records*14 June 1648Nathaniel was still living and described as a neighbor when John Lake of Boston, tailor, sold to Thomas Wilborne, saddler. The deed, dated 14 June 1648, described Nathaniel Eaton as the bounder on the north and was not recorded until 20 February 1685.1
Death*He died in Boston sometime before his widow married again by August 1650.5,11

However, Oliver had died of the plague by 25 July 1552, the date his father made a codicil redistributing Oliver's share. The will showed John Heaton to be a prosperous yeoman, who conducted considerable husbandry with bees, sheep, cattle, horses, and oxen. The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold, and his bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence. For additional information regarding his specific bequests, excerpts of his will are included in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register source.3

In the name of God, Amen. I Owen Heaton of Hilltown Township, Bucks County, state of Pennsylvania, being of sound mind, memory and understanding, but considering the uncertainty of this transitory life, do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form as follows.

First. It is my will and I do order that all my just debts and funeral expenses be duly paid and satisfied by my hereinafter named Executors as soon as conveniently can be after my decease.

Item. I order and direct that my Executors sell at public sale within one year after my death all my real and personal property I may own at the time of my death and I do hereby empower my Executors, or the survivors of them, to sign, seal and execute all such deeds as may be requisite and necessary to assure the property to the purchasers thereof.

Item. I give and bequeath all the money arising out of my real estate and personal property coming into the hands of my Executors, after deducting the aforesaid payments and their just charges and expenses, that they shall distribute as follows:

The sum of $200 to my daughter Mary Margaret in advance, and the remainder in equal shares to my three children and my grandchild Edmund E. Bitting, being four shares. One share to Mahlon Heaton, Mary Margaret Heaton, Eliza, intermarried to Thomas M. Wiser, and Edmund E. Bitting. In case my death occurs before my said grandson attains the age of 21 years, my Executors shall have a guardian appointed by the Orphans Court who shall receive his share and hold it in trust until he attains said age and then receive his share from said guardian.

Item. In case of the death of said grandson Edmund E. Bitting, during his minority or at any age without children, the said bequest by me to him made, the amount thereof, I order and do direct his estate shall owe to my three hereinbefore named children. And I hereby give the same to them in equal shares.

Item. In case the sum of $200, or any part thereof, my son Mahlon M. Heaton borrowed of Miss Thomas, for which I am bound as security, and I or my estate shall have to pay, I order that the said amount with interest due, or so much thereof as will be collected from my estate shall be deducted from his share coming to him of my estate.

And, lastly. I constitute and appoint my daughter Mary M. Heaton and son-in-law Thomas M. Wiser to be the Executors of this, my will, declaring this to be my last will and testament.
