People of Note

Colton has given birth to and housed a number of people of note, either within the county or nationally. Members of the Society have spent many thousands of hours researching local people who have had an impact on the lives of others, whether in Colton or further a field.

Currently, we have organised the resulting articles about some of these people and they are listed below. Please click on a name to see the full article.

Maybe one of these people is a relative! We welcome any further information you may have about this person and invite you to make contact with us to tell us more.
