Re: William C. Acton of Charles Co., MD
There were two early colonial Maryland Henry Actons.

One was a Captain Acton.
I believe that this is your line.
The other one was another Henry Acton, who did not arrive in Maryland Colony from Longnor, Shropshire, until around 1700 or shortly after.
This is my line.
They may be somehow related, as most of the Shropshire Acton gentry were, but they are not the same direct line, as far as I can determine.
