Generation One

Barnabas (1600-1680)

   The heritage of Barnabas Horton has been carried on through the generations from Southold to Salem.  Exactly when he left England and on what ship he traveled has never been proven.  What is known is that he was a man of unquestionable character and great faith, which is shown on his Tablestone and in his will. He became a freeman in Hartford before arriving in Southold where he served as a constable and then as a Deputy to the General Court in 1663 and 1664.  As a founding father of the Town and of the church he was active in the affairs of both, and of the colony.  It is said that he agreed to maintain the lane to the dock, which allowed him to have lots on either side of Hortonís Lane.  In 1640 he received a land grant which included the land on which the Horton's Point Lighthouse now sits.

BARNABAS1 HORTON1 was born July 13, 1600 in Mowsley, Leicestershire, England, and died July 13, 1680 in Southold, Suffolk County, Ny2where he is buried in the Old Burying Ground of the First Presbyterian Church.
