Can we link composer William Walton to main tree? [closed]

+8 votes

I have today added to the profiles of English composer William Walton and his parents. I will try over the next few days to take his ancestry further back and see if he can be linked to the main tree. If anyone wants to help on this, that would be more than welcome!

I have now got the paternal line back to William Walton,, baptised 1809, son of William and Elizabeth, and another line back to Peter Black of Moray, Scotland - - born in about 1799. That is probably about as far as I can take things back. I will leave others to take over if they find more information. Thank you!
