b. 31 August 1639, d. before 7 April 1714
Relationship2nd great-grandson of John Heaton
ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Father*Nathaniel Heaton4,1 b. 22 Dec 1602
Mother*Elizabeth Wight4,1 b. 2 Nov 1606
Birth*31 August 1639Nathaniel Heaton was born on 31 August 1639 in Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony,5,6,3
Baptism1 September 1639 and was baptized the next day on 1 September 1639 at First Church, Boston.5,7
Education*Nathaniel grew up in Boston and likely received some formal education.2
Relocation*1670 By 1670, he had moved to the village of Dedham, Suffolk County.2
Land Grant* In Dedham he was a freeman and was given a parcel of land, probably about 10 acres.2
Biographical Info* He was continuously a member of town councils and committees in both Dedham and Wrentham, and also became involved in local politics. He was the cosigner of many letters to the Governor General of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England) about local issues, and in the 1670s a group of residents, including Nathaniel, petitioned the King to divide Dedham into two villages, the second being Wrentham. On the copy of the signatures included in the Heaton Families, Nathaniel's signature appears prominently, its location fourth from the last.8
Occupation*Nathaniel was a farmer and husbandman his entire life.2
Marriage*He married Mary __?__ in Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).2,9,3
Research NotesSeveral researchers have published reports indicating that Nathaniel's wife Mary's surname may have been "Minor". Some sources have gone so far as to identify her as Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas Minor and Grace Palmer, born on 5 May 1651 in New London, Connecticut.

Although we would love to know her actual identity, we know she was not that Mary. Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas and Grace Minor, died on 24 Jan 1659/60 at only eight years of age.

Heaton Families: 350 Years in America" speculated, without offering any source information, that Mary may have been related to John Maynard, also spelled "Minor", her husband's mother's third husband. Again, although Mary was probably the right age to have been one of John Maynard's missing daughters, without documentation, we don't know.10,11,12,2
Probate*30 January 1682The estate of Nathaniel's mother, Elizabeth Maynard, late of Boston, widow, deceased was opened for probate on 30 January 1682 in Boston, Suffolk County, and son Nathaniel Heaton and Cornelius Fisher, his deceased sister Leah's husband, both of Wrentham and identified as two of the deceased's sons, were given full power to administer her estate. They gave bond, and the next day submitted an inventory taken by John Marion Sr. and Robert Butcher that included both real and personal property valued at £110:04:03 in total.13
Will*27 December 1683When Nathaniel, as Executor, exhibited the will of his mother Elizabeth Maynard to the court on 27 December 1683, Mr. Edward Rawson and John Marion Sr. made oath that they were present when Elizabeth "Minor" signed her will, that it was written by Rawson and that she was of disposing mind.14
Relationship NoteMary may have been the daughter of Nathaniel Heaton and Mary __?__. The Heaton Families identifies Mary as the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary Heaton, however neither the "English Ancestry of Nathaniel and James Heaton" article nor Roy Heaton's Family Pedigree Chart mentions a daughter named Mary. Both refer to only 6 children for the couple, not 7.2,15,3
Death*before 7 April 1714Nathaniel died before 7 April 1714 when administration was granted on his estate in Suffolk County. In 1714, he would have been age 74.2,5

RelationshipGreat-grandson of John Heaton
ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Father*William Heaton1 b. 31 Jul 1567
Mother*Elizabeth Sedgwick1 b. 24 Feb 1569
Baptism*22 December 1602Nathaniel Heaton was baptized on 22 December 1602 in Habrough, Lincolnshire, England.1
Research Notes*Earlier research confused Nathaniel Heaton of the parish of Alford in Lincolnshire, England, and Nathaniel Heaton of Great Coates, also in Lincolnshire. Although it was eventually proved that the two Nathaniels were not the same person, the search led to the discovery of a common origin for our New England Heaton immigrants in Habrough, Lincolnshire.2
Marriage*21 April 1630He married, as her first husband, Elizabeth Wight, daughter of Robert Wight and Elizabeth Fulshaw, on 21 April 1630 in St. Wilfrid's Church, Alford, Lincolnshire, England. Heaton Families II reported that St. Wilfrid's Church in Alford was built in 1350 and was restored in 1867, and that according to Bruce Heaton who visited the site, Alford is a market town and was founded in 1283. Nathaniel and Elizabeth may have lived there after their marriage since their children were baptized there. 1630 was a notable year in that a major plague hit the town killing many of his residents.3,4,5,6
Relocation*after April 1634Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton moved shortly after April 1634 to London. They stayed there only briefly, probably in preparation for their emigration to New England.4
Immigration*18 September 1634Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), with their four children, sons Samuel and Jabez and daughters Leah and Mary in 1634. The family sailed aboard the ship Griffin, leaving England on 01 August 1634 and arriving in Boston on 18 September 1634 with about one hundred passengers and livestock.7,8,5
Religion*2 November 1634 On 2 November 1634, Elizabeth and Nathaniel Heaton, who was identified as a mercer, were admitted as members of the First Church of Boston. He held a number of lay offices in the church.9,5
Freeman*25 May 1636Having fulfilled his indentureship, Nathaniel was admitted a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 25 May 1636. This meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship, being free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote.5,10
Occupation*He soon became a shopkeeper in Boston.5
Land Grant*8 January 1637/38 On 8 January 1637/38, when the town of Boston honored an act approved in December 1635 granting the "then inhabitants" a houseplot, Nathaniel Heaton was granted twenty acres of land along Muddy Creek. His plot was eighty rods long, bounded by James Johnson and Edmund Jackson.10,5
Residence*Nathaniel built a house with a garden in Boston on the east side of Washington Street, between Milk Street and Bedford Street. He later acquired land up the hill toward Vernon Street. The family's neighbor James Johnson proved to be a lifelong friend to Nathaniel's wife, Elizabeth, through three widowhoods.5
Coroner Inquest*15 September 1640Nathaniel Heaton signed his name on 15 September 1640 as one of the twelve men who had examined the dead body of William Richards, and determined that Richards had hanged himself in Thomas Buttolph's outhouse.10
Land Records*14 June 1648Nathaniel was still living and described as a neighbor when John Lake of Boston, tailor, sold to Thomas Wilborne, saddler. The deed, dated 14 June 1648, described Nathaniel Eaton as the bounder on the north and was not recorded until 20 February 1685.1
Death*He died in Boston sometime before his widow married again by August 1650.5,11

Research Notes*Earlier research confused Nathaniel Heaton of Great Coates in Lincolnshire, England, and Nathaniel Heaton of the parish of Alford, also in Lincolnshire. Although it was eventually proved that the two Nathaniels were not the same person, the search led to the discovery of a common origin for our New England Heaton immigrants in Habrough, Lincolnshire.4

The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold, and his bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence.
