Our Maryland Heritage, Book 43: The Hilton Families


Mr. Hurley’s Our Maryland Heritage series continues with this book, which investigates the Hilton families, primarily of Montgomery County, but also includes family members found in other Maryland counties and elsewhere. This study began with the goal of providing information about the Hilton families generally found in Montgomery County and expanded to include information from a number of other sources. The data contained in this report has been prepared from information found in a variety of sources, including records found at the library of the Montgomery County Historical Society, such as personal family files, obituaries, church and cemetery records, published collections of data, and published genealogies of related families. Individual chapters are devoted to: St. Mary’s County records with a discussion of John Hilton (1637–1705) of England, James Hilton (1735), Thomas I. Hilton (1773), John Hilton of Thomas (1796), Lloyd Hilton (1798), Joshua Hilton (1800), Walter H. Hilton (1804), Hilton families of Frederick County and miscellaneous Hilton families. Numerous photographs of people and places, a bibliography, and a full-name index enhance the text.
