Does anyone know of a Holton castle somewhere in the North of England. I am planning a trip out that way and would really like to see this castle in my family's name. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Seth, I believe that Holton castle is in Skipton, Yorkshire.
I'll let you know if I find any more info.

Sorry all this took so long, but it all had to go via Pony Express.
I sent a card to mate of mine who knows every hump and bump in Yorkshire. And he really came up with nothing spelt like that. There are a number of villages with that name, but none in Yorkshire, and none with castles.
There is of course Halton Castle, Runcorn, Cheshire. Also Hylton Castle, Sunderland. There is a Halton castle NE of Lancaster. After that you really would be strecthing the name to make it fit.

At http://www.southern-style.com/bursonram/pafg118.htm it says that "Aubrey FitzRichard was born in 1158 in Holton Castle, Skipton, Yorkshire, England".
However, I can find nothing else.

Regards, Paul.

It is a strange one that Paul, would be interesting to know more. My mate Steve came up with a few suggestions near Skipton, and said at a pinch they could be classed as such, but these were;
Barden Tower, Farnhill fortified house, And I think (his writings terrible!) |Gargrave moat, Norton Tower. Also Hellifield Peel but that is much further away.
What I'll do is run this page off and re-send it to him.
Being from Almondbury, he is closer to sources than we are.
See what happens!
