The Horton family is an original and the core fictional family on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, featured continuously since the series debut episode first-run November 8, 1965. The ensemble is created around the marriage, children, and family of Dr. Tom Horton (Macdonald Carey) and his wife Alice (Frances Reid). Prominently a family of doctors, the Hortons have branched out to include lawyers, journalists, police officers and more. Along with the Brady family, the Hortons are one of the two central families on the show.

Since April 1966, every episode is opened by Carey speaking the voice-over epigraph, "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the 'days of our lives' ... "; from Days inception until Carey's death in 1994, and on special episodes since, the initial words are followed by " ... this is Macdonald Carey, and these are the 'days of our lives.'"


This is a list of all known members of the Horton family, both past and present, deceased and living. Characters still presently on Days of our Lives are bolded, characters who are members of the family through marriage only are italicized. Dates of birth as those as seen on screen and do not necessarily reflect the portrayed age at any given time.
