HATTON, Thomas, born in England; died in Maryland in 1655. He was descended from Sir Christopher Hatton, Queen Elizabeth's lord chancellor. He came from London to Maryland in 1648, and was appointed secretary of the province, and privy councillor, shortly after his arrival. He is said to have brought with him the draught of the toleration act from Lord Baltimore, but he was absent, on the day of its passage, from the assembly of 1649 During the brief absence of Governor Stone from the province, in the same year, Thomas Green was appointed governor, with Hatton as substitute. Hatton refused to sit in the Puritan assembly of 1654, and was killed at the battle of the Severn in 1655, in defending the government of Lord Baltimore.
