Subject: [DUTTON] Robert Dutton is deeded land in PA IN 1681
Date: Sat, 26 Jul 2003 15:48:05 -0400


Hello,
Did anyone know that Robert Dutton owned land in PA before John Dutton?
Could this be John Dutton¹s brother, Robert? Why didn¹t he come to America?
Did he die along the way? Or maybe he just stayed in England?

³At the southwest end of the township, extending eastward to the original
Newtown Street, was a tract of five hundred acres surveyed to Robert Dutton
Jan. 18-19, 1681. Dutton appears never to have lived on this estate, which
subsequently passed, April 6-7, 1723, to Robert Tippring. Prior to the
Revolution much of the property was owned by the Hunter family, and the
stream which ran through the land took its name Hunter's Run from that
fact.²
