Hatton, Christopher, Sir -1619)

Sir Christopher Hatton of Kirby was the son of John Hatton, first cousin of Elizabeth's Lord Chancellor, and of Dionice Ware. The Lord Chancellor, who was a bachelor, adopted his sister's son, Sir William Newport, as his heir, but in default of male issue the estates were settled on his godson, Sir Christopher, and accordingly, on Sir William's death, Sir Christopher succeeded. He was created a Knight of the Bath at the coronation of James I. He married Alice, daughter of Thomas Fanshawe, of Ware Park, and was the father of the Sir Christopher who was created Baron Hatton of Kirby.
