John Horton, had been a clothier in Lullington on the Somerset side of Frome but settled in Iford on the Wiltshire side.  He died in 1497 leaving three sons.  His youngest son entered the Church.

His second son, Thomas, prospered as a manufacturer and accumulated considerable property at Bradford, Trowbridge, Keevil, Chippenham, Box and elsewhere.  He died at his house in Westwood, Iford in 1530. His heir was his nephew, Thomas, son of his brother William.

Thomas married Margerie Barkesdale the daughter of Thomas Barkesdale another wealthy clothier from Keevil.  This Thomas Horton died in 1549 after being actively involved in clothiery.  He left two sons Edward and William.  William married Johanna (Joan) Bailey. the daughter of Thomas Bailey who was a wealthy clothier of Trowbridge. William and Johanne (Joan) appear to have had 14 children.
