Welcome to the WHEATON Web page.
I married a
WHEATON in 1960 but did not begin researching the name until 1983.
Within a couple of years we had traced our WHEATON line back to the
marriage of a Thomas WHEATON in 1726 in the village of Hilton in
have linked together nearly all the WHEATONs who have
lived in Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire since 1726 we
have discovered that Thomas and his ancestors did not
originate in either of the two counties. In an endeavour
to find where Thomas was born a start was made on
collecting information from other counties as well as
making contact with WHEATON researchers on other
Continents. The hope was that information from somewhere,
or from someone, would provide a clue as to the origins
of our WHEATON line. In a further attempt to make contact
with other people researching this name, WHEATON was registered for many
years with the Guild of One Name Studies.
The setting up of this site in November 2000 was undertaken with the idea of making contact with the person who held the clue to the information for which we were searching. This has not happened!
setting up the site I have been sent details of many
different WHEATON families. I have endeavoured to include
such information on the website. If you find your family
on the site, please contact me so that, if possible, I
can put you in touch with the person who sent the information Or you
can go to
the E-MAIL CONTACT ADDRESSES page where you may find the
name of the person who contributed their WHEATON information to the
site. You can then made a direct contact, but I trust you will
still send me the details of your WHEATON family.
