The Dutton Tree by P. H. Lawson FSA

One of the first people to approach me during the Warburton Event in Altrincham on October 15th was Theo Dutton . He loaned to me a rolled up chart of The Dutton Tree which was created by P.H. Lawson FSA. It covers the ancestors and descendants of Odard de Dutton, and indicates the start of the Warburton branch. It commences with a Norse King, and ends with four individuals who are, if still living, younger than me. In all it covers 39 generations.
