Tree: Murphy White Family Histories
Notes: White’s 1857 Directory of Derbyshire
CATTON, township and small scattered village on the Trent, 6½ miles S. from Burton-on-Trent, and 1½ N.W. from Croxall, contains 1145A. 3R. 17P. of strong good wheat land, 11 houses, and 77 inhabitants, of whom 40 were males, and 33 females; mteable value, £2,290. Lady Wilmot Horton is the owner, who pays all the tithe and rates. By the commutation of tithe, the rent charge to the vicar amounts to £91 15s., and the full value of the whole parish is £365. The Hall is a noble brick mansion, pleasantly situated in a fine park on the east bank of the Trent; it is the seat and property of Lady Wilmot Horton; also three other farms, in most pleasant situations, viz: the Catton farm and the Donkill Pitt farm, 2 miles N.W. from Croxall Church, and the Mansditch, a little more north. The late Eusebus Horton, Esq., was a lineal descendant of Roger Horton, Esq., who died seized of the manor in 1421.
CHARITIES.—Edmund Allson, it is stated in the returns of 1786, gave £5 to the poor, and Francis Horton, in 1785, gave £5 to the poor of Croxall and £5 to the poor of Catton in this parish, all of which sums are stated to have been vested in Eusebius Horton, Esq., and to have produced 15s. per annum. It does not appear that the interest of these sums was ever paid to the parish officers, and distributed as a permanent charity. It is stated, however, that the late E. Horton, Esq., occasionally gave away money to the poor of Croxall and Catton—in which, possibly the interest of these sums may have been included.
