Walter Chatton was born c.1285 in the area around Carlisle, in all likelihood in the town of Catton (not Chatton, which lies near the coast north of Alnwick), and died in 1343. He joined the Franciscan order at a very young age, even before he was fourteen, and he was ordained subdeacon at Dalston by the bishop of Carlisle, John of Halton, in 1307.
