Synopsis: Excerpt from History, Genealogical and Biographical, of the Eaton Families
If I have succeeded in gathering up fragments containing information which otherwise would have been lost of the Eaton families - my labor will not have been in vain.
I do not suppose that I have avoided all mistakes; in a work of this kind it would not be strange of there should be inaccuracies. Town, county, and family records are the authorities which I have depended upon.
Tradition says that the Eatons were Britons. That when Caesar first invaded Britain 55 years before Christ, the Britains had no towns but dwelt in scattered huts. When they went out to battle they dyed their faces in order to terrify their enemies. In their religion they worshiped many Gods and most horrible were the sacrifices they practiced.
The Romans were a civilized people and had been so for many centuries and it was not until Caesar's Second Invasion that the Britons knew fear. For it was at this time that the Chief of the tribe which had subdued many of the neighboring tribes, and whose stronghold was a stockade near the modern St. Albans, found his followers seeking the protection of Caesar.
Thus encouraged, Caesar dashed at his stockade, took it by storm. Through fear the great Chief Cassivelanus abandoned the struggle and Caesar returned to Gaul, leaving for nearly a century after his departure Britain to herself.
