  • Name Nicholas MURTON 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Est 1490 
    • A rough estimate - based on estimate of dob of his probable son Austen, and assuming he was third son as listed third in Chancery court case.

      Graveney is very close to  Boughton under Blean, and the fact Nicholas had a son Austen suggests he was probably father or at least closely related to my 12 x gt grandfather Augustine / Austen MURTON. I could be missing a generation. Hopefully seeing the Chancery documents and Nicholas' will will give an idea of the age of his sons when he died, and whether Austen was his son, as currently shown on this tree.

    • A Chancery Court case believed to date from between 1533 and 1538 refers to the detention of deeds relating to a gavelkind messuage in Graveney, by Robert Martyn, gentleman. The plaintiffs were Richard, Thomas and Austen, sons and heirs of Nicholas Murton. (The accusation may have been a fiction - a way of recording a property transaction).
