Hatton, EDWARD ANTHONY, Dominican, apologist; b. in 1701; d. at Stourton Lodge, near Leeds, York-shire, October 23, 1783—according to some authorities, 1781. He was probably the son of Edward Hatton, yeoman, of Great Crosby, Lancashire, who registered his estate as a Catholic non-juror in 1717, and whose family appears in the recusant rolls for many generations. He received his education in the Dominican college at Bornhem, near Antwerp, where he was professed, May 25, 1722, taking the name in religion of Antoninus. Having filled the duties of teacher for several years, he was ordained priest and on July 7, 1730, he left college for the mission work in his own country. He first officiated as chaplain, in turn, to several gentlemen in Yorkshire, and in the year 1749 he went to assist Father Thomas Worthington, O.P., at Middleton Lodge, near Leeds. After the latter's death, which occurred on February 25, 1753 (or 1754), Father Hatton was entrusted with the care of the mission. Shortly afterwards he was compelled to remove the mission to Stourton Lodge, where ultimately he succeeded in having a new chapel erected (1776), but a few miles distant from the scene of his former labors. Twice was Father Hatton appointed to the office of provincial of his order in England: on May 21, 1754—until the year 1758; his second term of office lasted from May 7, 1770, till 1774. In 1776 he began the mission at Hunslet, near Leeds, but did not live long to behold the unfolding of the work he had originated.

His writings include: "Moral and Controversial Lectures upon the Christian Doctrines and Christian Practice (By E. H.)". To this work neither place of publication nor date is assigned. "Memoirs of the Reformation of England; in two parts. The whole collected chiefly from Acts of Parliament and Protestant historians", published (London, 1826; 2nd ed., 1841) under the pseudonym of Constantius Archaeophilus. Hatton is also the author of "Miscellaneous Sermons upon some of the most important Christian Duties and Gospel Truths", 7 vols. MS.

"It is impossible for me to understand on what scientific grounds is founded this resurrection of the old materialistic view of the world that had its first great expression from Epicurus and Lucretius. Nothing that I can see justifies it."
-- Joseph Hyrtl; Austrian anatomist; renowned educator, author of classic textbooks on applied anatomy, chair of anatomy at the University of Vienna, Catholic.
