Hi- My grandmother was an Acton - lived in Pretoria as did her eight brothers and sisters. I heard her speak about a Dickie - I can't remember if it was her father or not - but her father was a younger son, I think ...in any event - a musician who ended up being a band master/conductor ....My grandmother was Ida - she died in around 1983 - her siblings were Claude, Frank, Alma, Myra, Ethel, (I can't remeber the rest.)I know that her uncles achieved some success which might help your search - I think one became the receiver of revenue .... They were third or fourth generation South Africans - originally from England. Hope this helps.
