Research

This information was researched and crosschecked as best one can do given the ancient time frames.The reference to historical events is to better understand the circumstances that precipitated the family name de Mitton and Ralph the Red’s progenitor legacy to Mitton family descendants. It also reveals an overlooked Clitheroe post Norman history in which the de Mittons were a founding Norman family. The de Mitton family and their scion descendants played a prominent role in the local history for many subsequent centuries. It made for an interesting story to research and hopefully to the reader as well.
