Dunten/Dunton and Allied Families 2003 update


Both Robert and Samuel Dunton are on the town list in Reading in 1644 and drew their land allotment in 1652. Both Robert and Samuel are said to have come from Lynn prior to settling in Reading. Some authorities state, “they were father and son or perhaps brothers,” but no evidence has been found to support these claims. Due to the uncertainty of Robert Dunton’s family status, this text opens with Samuel Dunton as number one. Samuel Dunton was born about 1620 in England and died 9 June 1685 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

This two-volume set spans fifteen generations, listing 4,178 descendants. Researchers will appreciate the familiar Modified Register System used in this straight forward genealogy outline. The source notes are numbered and are listed at the end of each chapter, generally following the outline of the Silicon Valley PAF Users Group. The index is arranged alphabetically by surname. The given name is followed by the year of birth and death. A married woman will appear under both her maiden name and under her married name with her maiden name in parentheses.
