There's a monument dedicated to him on Caldy Hill. Does anybody know much about him ?

Born in 1861 (Sheffield?), died in 1930 (Wirral).

He was seemingly involved in the cotton industry.

Quote:
Sir Alfred Paton, an Old Boy of the school, bequeathed to The National Trust 20 acres land bordering Thurstaston Common with a proviso to the bequest stating that this area was to be available to the Rugby Club to use as a playing area in perpetuity. So Paton Field came into existence.

Born 1861, Sheffield, Died, 1930,

Parents John Brown Paton, Jessie Paton, both born Scotland,
His father, John Brown Paton was a Independent Minister (church),

1917, Alfred Vaughan was President of the Liverpool Cotton Association, was a Oxford graduate. I don't think he ever married, his last address is on Probate below.

His brother Captain Morton Brown Paton, South Lancs. was killed in action, 7/August 1915, Gallipoli.

Thanks bert1. He also apparently had a house named after him at Calday Grange Grammar School until 1994.

Ive got a feeling a house was named after him at the girls Grammar School as well. (Or one of his kith and kin)

I'm wondering when he went to Calday grammer, if by Old Boy it means ex pupil. Did they take in boarders?
Going off census information, 1871 and 1881, he is recorded at Nottingham, there's a snippet in the 1877 Nottingham Guardian newspaper, the piece titled, Oxford Local Examinations.
Alfred Vaughan Paton, Nottingham High School, more or less reporting he'd won a place.

Sir Alfred Paton was the eldest son of Nonconformist theologian John Brown Paton (1830-1911) who was principal of the Nottingham Congregational Institute from 1863 to 1898. Alfred attended Nottingham High School and Clifton College before being awarded a scholarship at Trinity College Oxford to study Classics. As well as being a director and President of the Liverpool Cotton Association, he was Chairman of Rainford Potteries Ltd.

In his will Sir Alfred directed that his body be cremated and the ashes deposited in the rock at the top of Caldy Hill in the centre of the Heath Garden on his property there, land which was to be conveyed to the National Trust for the use of the public.
