Latton, William (1653N/A

Probably the stamps of William Latton, second son of Thomas Latton of Kingston Bagpuyze in Berkshire, and Mary Ayscough. He was educated at Wadham College, Oxford, where he matriculated 12 July 1670, age 17, took his B.A. 5 May 1674, became a Fellow in 1675, received his M.A. in 1677, and incorporated at Cambridge in 1680. He became a student of Gray's Inn in 1679. He appears to have moved to Surrey in 1670, and was Captain of a company of scholars at the time of the Duke of Monmouth's rebellion in 1685. If the identification is correct, the family appears to have continued to use the stamps after his death.
