George Dyer Colton
1846 - 1891
 
 
In those early years we find the surname 'Colton' spelt in several ways 'Coulton' / 'Cotton'. Many people in those times were not able to read or write so they would have been reliant on the transcriber and in all fairness they in turn would have have been influenced by dialects. As time progressed we see that the families preference was 'Colton'.
