These families were linked to the Thorotons by the marriage of Colonel Thomas Thoroton (1753-1813) to Anne Bowes (d 1827), eldest daughter and co-heir of George Wanley Bowes of Thornton Hall, county Durham. Anne, together with her two sisters, inherited estates in Northumberland and Durham (the 'Thoroton-Croft' estates).
Anne Thoroton, née Bowes, was left a life estate in an extensive estate in Lincolnshire by her cousin, Mary Hutton. After Anne's death the life interest passed to her son Colonel Thomas Blackborne Hildyard, who made arrangements to sell the land by Act of Parliament in the late 1820s. The last parts of the estate were sold by his son Thomas Blackborne Thoroton Hildyard in the 1840s. Mary Hutton had herself inherited the estate from her sister Dorothy Popham, who had inherited it from her first husband Thomas Wallis.
