      Notes:

      Sir Richard DENTON b: 1565 Worley, Yorkshire, England d: Dec 9, 1619 Hartfordshire, England - m- 1582 Worley, Halifax, Yorkshire, England ( Other sources has them married in 1581 and Richard being born in 1557, They also have his Christening as Dec 17, 1557 Halifax, Yorkshire, England ) to Susan SIBELLA Denton, of Denton, Warnell, and Cardew.

      This ancient family was of Denton-hall, in Nether-Denton, soon after the conquest. The male line became extinct, in the elder branch, after five descents, by the death of Sir Richard Denton, whose heiress married Adam Copley; Richard Copley, grandson of Adam, had a daughter and heiress married to Adam del'Hall, who took the name of Denton, and had a grant from his fatherin-law of the arms of Denton, as borne by his maternal ancestor, Sir Richard Denton (fn. 2) . This Adam was ancestor of the Dentons of Warnellhall, who began to reside at that place (which they acquired in exchange for Denton) as early as the middle of the sixteenth century; the immediate male descendant of this branch is Mr. Charles Denton, of Cockermouth, nephew of John Denton, Esq., who sold Warnell-hall to Sir James Lowther, (afterwards Earl of Lonsdale) in 1774.

      Arms of Denton of Denton and Warnell-hall, as granted by Richard Copley, and still borne by the family. Arg. two bars, Gules, in chief three cinquefoils, Sable.

      the second. Crest: " A martlet, Sable, as described in the heralds' visitations; but it is said in the MS. of John Denton, of Cardew, that they bore for their crest, a castle burning, with a flaming sword in a lion's paw on the top of it, granted by Edward Baliol to their ancestor, for his gallantry in defending a castle in Annandale, against Robert Bruce.

      Sorry to enter this discussion so late; have been busy with my "real" job as university faculty member. There is another source published by Burke's, called _Extinct Peerages_, which in our case may be quite fitting; although as late as the John Major cabinet in England, the minister of education was one Baroness Nancy Denton.

      There are a number--I'm not quite sure how many but with a concerted effort we could put our heads together and find out--of Dentons who were knights--i.e. Knights Bachelor--and were entitled to be called "Sir" So-and-So.

      At least three Dentons were knighted by Queen Elizabeth I in 1603, the year she ascended the throne.

      Yes, the Royal College of Arms in London is _the_ source; in the U.S. _Burke's Peerage_ is good place to start.

      John Ottinger, can you add anything to this discussion? I'm at my computer without reference books handy.

      Hi Carol!

      It seems that our long-ago Dentons were pretty spiffy guys! There was a baron and a couple of knights, but I don't know much beyond that.

      There are several towns called Denton in England, but our Dentons came from around Yorkshire. On the Denton web site, on my links page, in the part about 'of special interest to Dentons' there are some links to sites about Yorkshire. Some of them have maps and I've located some of the Denton towns. Perhaps someone on the list knows more about me about how some Dentons came to merit their own Coat of Arms and what the process was. I suppose to be absolutely correct, we would have to research back in our own lines to find the precise Coat of Arms for our line, but apparently even then it was not a static design and changed as to position in the family of the men, etc. I'm really unsure about all this, but we are all learning it together!

      A great deal of our Rev. Richard Denton family information in England came from the parrish records of Coley's Chapel in Halifax, Yorkshire, England where he was a minister before coming to America.

      Blessing!

      Sue Montgomery-Cook

      regards all of this. Does this mean Dentons were landed gentry, titled gentry or royalty. I have a friend who is from England and she says most people who came from an area had their family history in the local parish church so is there a "Denton" England? How would one get a coat of arms done?

      Marion,

      I have a TENTATIVE connection for our Rev. Richard Denton's ?? father who was married 2 Mar 1590 (no location). He is SIR RICHARD DENTON with wife SUSAN. This was from Records of Worley, Halifax, Yorkshire, England from a former Denton researcher (now deceased).

      Of course, we know that our Rev. Richard Denton was baptised 10 Apr 1603 in Worley, Halifax, Yorkshire, Eng. There is a record also for Sir Richard Denton's daughter, Susan, baptized 21 Dec 1600.

      Any comments?
