HORTON (British). "Muddy place".
Among the Nobles
and clergy who signed the Ragman Rolls of 1296
"The parish of Horton (Hortune, xi cent.) contains an area of 1366 acres. There are 803 acres of arable land and 580 of permanent grass, but no woodland. The slope of the land is almost uniformly from 57 ft. to 67 ft. above the ordnance datum, and the maximum height attained is 80 ft. in the extreme north of the parish. The soil is loam, the subsoil gravel, and the chief crops are wheat, oats, barley and roots. Horton is well watered by various small feeders of the Rivers Thames and Colne. The Colne separates it on the east from the county of Middlesex. The village of Horton occupies a central position in the parish. A large elm tree stands on the village green at a point where the roads converge. There is a tradition that it was planted to commemorate the death of a child belonging to the Crown Inn opposite, who was accidently killed by the fall of the maypole on this spot."http://met.open.ac.uk/genuki/big/eng/BKM/Horton/Index.html
