"The family of Aughton had been established in Lancashire for about four generations. Their male line came from Rhuddlan in North Wales where they were driven out by the Welsh risings in the thirteenth century and as compensation were given land at Aughton." (North Meols and Southport. A History, Peter Aughton, 1988) Madoc de Hacton along with his brothers Bleddyn de Hacton and Richard de Walys (the Welshman) were joint underlords of North Meols, the superior lord being Robert Banastre (Lord of Prestatyn expelled by the Welsh) and his heirs. This Welsh line is in accordance with Farrer in his Victoria County History (1908). However an alternative descent is provided by Baines who states that Madoc de Hacton or Aughton was the son of William Fitzwilliam and an elder brother of William de Coudray. He then goes on to trace their descent to Richard son of Uctred. At the time of the Domesday Survey (1087) Aughton along with other manors was held by a Saxon thane called Uctred, more than likely an ancestor of the later Uctred. Peter Aughton conjectures that the male line originated from Wales but the Saxon ancestry is probably a maternal line that has become confused with the paternal.

It should be noted that the Aughtons intermarried with the Comyns of Newbold and assumed their coat of arms with the dying out of the male line of that branch of the Comyns family. They also intermarried with the Coudrays and the Meols families who also held the lordship of the manor of Meols at various times.
