Seeking input on what we should use as the LNAB for Adam de Houghton and his father and son and grandchildren. His father and son (and his children) are shown with LNAB of Houghton. Some sources show the most ancient family members with LNAB of Hocton; later generations are shown with Hoghton.
Right now Adam, Adam's father (another Adam), Adam's son Richard (two showing w/same name -- need to merge), as well as two of three of Richard's children, have LNAB of Houghton. However, I've been asked if it should be Hoghton.
I haven't come across any great references to the early members of this family to determine which way to go with the spelling. Please pipe in with opinions and references for your opinion, paying particular attention that any references refer to these early generations (as opposed to ones from the 1300s onward). Thanks.
