  1. 1.  John Waterton was born about 1365 in of Waterton, Lincolnshire, England; died between 16 Mar 1417 and 5 Nov 1417.

    Notes:

    From "The Two John Watertons - Part 2", by John Watson, a post to soc.medieval.genealogy dated 2 Nov 2014:

    John Waterton, esquire was the son of Richard, son of William, son of Ingram de Waterton and was the brother of the king's esquire Robert Waterton. He was probably born between 1360 and 1370.

    The first notice we have of him and his brother Robert is that they were with Henry Bolingbroke, earl of Derby, on his expedition, firstly to Calais, then to Prussia and Lithuania in 1390-91, together with their cousin Sir Hugh Waterton, who was Bolingbroke's chamberlain. John Waterton received pay as an esquire during the expedition until 30 April 1391. John and his brother Robert, master of Henry's horses, sailed with Henry to Danzig in July-August 1392, at the start of his journey to Jerusalem, but returned from Danzig to England in September 1392.

    John Waterton appears to have taken up residence firstly in Yorkshire and later in Lincolnshire, but exactly where is difficult to say. [...] He was sheriff of Lincoln between 29 November 1410 and 10 December 1411, when his brother Robert replaced him as sheriff. [...]

    After Henry V came to the throne in 1413, John Waterton appears to have been given two positions by the new king; as master of his horse, taking over from his brother Robert who had served as master of the horse to Henry Bolingbroke; and secondly as steward of the royal soke of Kirton in Lindsey in Lincolnshire. [...]

    John Waterton was in Henry V's retinue as Master of the King's Horse in the expedition to France in August 1415. On 25 October 1415, he was at the battle of Agincourt with six men at arms. John Waterton survived the battle and returned to England. On 4 February 1417, he was on a commission of walliis et fossatis in Lincolnshire and on 16 March 1417, he was a surety for Nicholas Tourney as sheriff of Lincoln.

    This is the last notice that I can find for John Waterton. On 5 November 1417, Sir Gerard Usflete was appointed to the office of steward of the royal soke of Kirton in Lindsey in place of John Waterton, deceased.

  1. 2.  Richard Waterton Descendancy chart to this point (1.John1) was born about 1400 in Medley, Yorkshire, England; died on 29 Mar 1461 in Towton, Yorkshire, England.

    Notes:

    "Early in 1421, Richard Waterton, son and heir of John Waterton, Nicholas Harewood and William Withornwick, executors of John Waterton's will, petitioned Henry V for letters discharging them from the custody of some gold cups and other plate which had been pledged to John Waterton as a security for his wages during the Agincourt campaign. On 2 May 1421, Richard son and heir of John Waterton, esquire, and his executors had a pardon from the king of "all debts, accounts, prests, receipts, liveries, wastes, stripments, dilapidations, exiles, trespasses, impeachments, misprisions, losses, actions, complaints, demands, farms, arrears, concealments, fines, issues and amercements" which seems to have covered just about everything except murder. [...] Richard Waterton later married Constance Asshenhul and was the ancestor of the Waterton family of Burn (in Brayton), Walton, Cawthorne, and Minsthorpe (in South Kirkby), Yorkshire and Corringham, Lincolnshire." [John Watson, "The Two John Watertons - Part 2", 2 Nov 2014, post to soc.medieval.genealogy.]

    Probably died in the Battle of Towton, according to John Watson.

According to Notices and Remains of the Family of Tyrwhitt (citation details below), Tyrwhit "hanged the trees on the way from Kettleby to Brigg with carcases of sheep and beasts (oxen), to show that he could feed all comers."

    He is said by some to have been a vice-admiral of England under Henry VIII, but as Robert Philip Tyrwhitt (citation details below) points out, he is more likely to have been one of many titular "vice-admirals" for a piece of his nearby Lincolnshire coast, a distinction shared by many armigerous men whose seats adjoined important pieces of coast.
