Dear William ~
Thank you for your good post. Much appreciated.
For your interest, I've copied below my current file account of a good royal line for the immigrant, Margaret Domville, of Maryland, wife successively of Richard Hatton and [Lieut,] Richard Banks.
I remain uncertain as to the maternity of Joan (or Jane) Stanley [Gen. 15 below].
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah

Post by William Good
I just came across the thread for this topic on the GEN-MEDIEVAL list
from last July.
There is a common misconception that Francis Scott Keys & F. Scott
Fitzgerald descend from the Hattons of Maryland. They do indeed descend
from Richard, son of Luke Gardiner, husband of Elizabeth Hatton
(1635-1702), but Richard was Luke Gardiner's eldest son by his first
wife Elizabeth Morris who died in about 1663.
I have also identified the paternal grandfather of Thomas Hatton,
Secretary of Maryland, and his brother Richard. He was William Hatton
of Hellesby, Frodsham, Cheshire, who died in 1611.
