William Moulton, the immigrant ancestor, was born in Ormsby, county Norfolk, England, about 1617. In his "examination" before leaving England, his age is given as twenty years, April 11, 1637. He came to America at that time with his wife's family, and they landed very likely at Boston, settling first at Newbury, Massachusetts. Here they remained about a year and then joined the new settlement at Winnacunnett, now Hampton, New Hampshire, in 1639. He resided there the remainder of his life, settling near the homes of Thomas and John Moulton, and he died there April 18, 1664, aged forty-seven years. His will was dated March 8, 1663-64, and in it he says he is "sick and weak of body." He left a large estate for the times, especially for a man dying so young. To his wife he left the west part of his new house and half the orchard, until she died or married again; also household goods and the whole stock of cattle, etc., towards bringing up the children. Joseph received a house and about forty acres of land. His other sons also received land, and the three daughters were bequeathed ten pounds each, when they should come of age or get married. The will was proved October 11, 1664. He married, in England*, Margaret, daughter of Captain Robert and Lucia (Lucy) Page. She married (second) Lieutenant John Sanborn, and died July 13, 1699. Children: Joseph, Benjamin, Hannah, Mary, Sarah, Ruth, Robert, William. [ref 29:918]
*probable error; if he married in England, the date would be prior to 1637

The Moultons of this country are of English origin. We find the name in the various forms Multon, Muleton, Molton, Moleton, Moulson and Moulton. The family is probably of Norman descent. The earliest of the name of whom record is found was Thomas Multon, or De Multon, stated in the Domesday Book made by order of the Norman William in 1986 to have been put in possession of an estate called "Galeshore." Later another Thomas Multon or Moulton of mixed Norman and Saxon descent, a resident of Gillesland in Cumberland, called also in French De Vaux, was an attendant of Richard I in his crusading wars and appears prominently in Scott's tale of the Talisman. The name of still another Thomas appears on Magna Charta granted by King John in 1215. Whatever the original Moultons may have been, the lapse of five centuries which blended Norman, Saxon, Dane and Briton into a common nationality, made them Englisnmen, and the family in the seventeenth century seem to have been composed largely of husbandmen with a decided sprinkling of those who followed the sea. The name is common in the Counties Lincoln, Yorkshire, Gloucestershire, Kent, Devonshire, Norfolk and London. In these counties Puritanism had its stronghold and the emigrant Moultons were evidently of that faith. They came to America with the great emigration during the troubled times of Charles I prior to the meeting of the Long Parliament. In those years more than twenty thousand Englishmen, oppressed for conscience sake, left their homes and came to the New England wilderness. These emigrants, says Green in his History of the English People, "were not like the earlier colonists of the South, broken men, adventurers . . . or simply poor men. . . . The bulk were God-fearing farmers from Lincolnshire and the Eastern counties. The desired 'only the best' as sharers in their enterprise." William Moulton came from Ormsby with the family of Robert Page, being a minor twenty years of age and married Margaret, Mr. Page's daughter. [ref 43:5:1-8]
