An introduction to Chapter 9

For nearly four centuries the Waweton/Wauton/Walton family were lords of the manor of Great Staughton but they also exercised power in the highest courts in the land, although not without some violent clashes with authority. This chapter tells the story of the origins of the family and their influence locally and nationally.
