As you go back any Hepton/Hebdon will be from Hebden. Hepton occurs particularly in the E & NE of Yorkshire.
Thomas & Jane moved to Leeds where the family were in the plumbing&c trade but later generations were mantle manufacturers. A marriage to a Lawrence lady resulted in the the name Lawrence being included in the christian names of later family.
Two sons of Thomas & Jane. Thomas & William were clockmakers, William's family continuing with a branch settling in Wellingborough. The clocks command a premium.

The first was compiled by a daughter of a cousin who died suddenly in 2005; we cannot access it to amend it as no-one knows her password and Lycos have not responded to messages. Narratives of some 25 H families are included.
The second has info in chronological order from way back but we have a much bigger similar file in hand.
