There are at least thirty place-Waltons as well as the person of that
surname whom it might have been, and whoever said it might have meant any
one of them, so it wasn't a very helpful definition.  Who did say it?  That
might give a hint.  I mean, if whoeveritwas came from Ipswich then Walton
on the Naze, being just west of *there*, might be the one.  :-)
