go back to the last page you were on George Orton HATTEN and Percy HATTEN

Percy & Orton were grandsons of Thomas HATTEN (1820-1910), son of John HATTEN & Ann MERRY, who was christened at St. Mary Magdalen, Duns Tew, Oxfordshire & emigrated to Canada West in about 1850. Four of John HATTEN's sons came to North America, which perhaps explains why I have been unable to find any of that name in Oxfordshire today.
