Norton was the son of Robert Norton of Swinton, Yorkshire and his wife, Catherine Stavely, daughter of John Stavely, of Swinton who left his etates to his daughter.[1]

In April 1640, Norton was elected Member of Parliament for Richmond in the Short Parliament.[2]

By 1667 Norton was a receiver of crown revenues for Durham, Northumberland and Richmond. In September of that year he got into difficulties and was called in for a review of his accounts. Proceeding were issued against his estate and he was put into custody, to be released on 16 September.[4][5] By September 1669 he was suspended from receiving rents for Northumberland and Durham, and archdeaconry of Richmond[6]
