Houghton / Hoghton Family
"There will be found many errors in dates because the different records often do not agree and there is no possible way of reconciling them. ... [T]he name Houghton, originally DeHocton, is supposed to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon word Hocton or Hoctune, signifying "Hightown" or "High Place" and was taken from one of the manors of the family in Lancashire, England, remarkable for its lofty situation. The possessor of this estate, Willus de Hocton, or ... Willus Dominus de Hocton, assumed the name of this manor about the year 1140. He was the first to bear it. ... the later style ... De Hoghton. The "de" was first omitted about the year 1458 by Sir Henry or ... his son, Sir William Hoghton about ... 1483." It is claimed that the "u" was introduced by those who settled in America. --- J. W. Houghton in The Houghton Genealogy

Richard de Houghton was fifth in descent from them and he was retained Knight of the Shire for Lancaster County and died 14 of Edward III in 1340.

Birthplace of Katherine de Houghton
 Hoghton Tower is fortified manor house in the Borough of Chorley to the east of Preston in Lancashire. It has been the ancestral home of the De Hoghton family since the time of William the Conqueror. It features a mile long driveway to the main gates. The original driveway extended far further and the cost of lining it with red carpet for the arrival of King James I of England nearly bankrupted the family. The Hoghton family has been at Hoghton since the 12th century, but the dramatic manor house that you can see today is primarily a product of the mid-Tudor period. The house is built in an elongated figure-8, encompassing two inner courtyards entered through a fiercely castellated gatehouse. Source: Photograph by Lancashire County Council
