I'm afraid I don't have much information for you.
I do know that John Acton's supposed place of birth "Acton Place, Devon" does not exist.
There were almost no Actons living in Devon. The only Acton family I have found living in Devon in the period 1700-1780 is the following:
Joseph Acton, married at Stoke Damerel, Devon 12 January 1763 Ann Mcnaston, and had issue,
1a Catherine, baptised at Stoke Damerel 1 January 1764.
2a Ann, baptised at Stoke Damerel 12 May 1770.
3a Elizabeth, baptised at Stoke Damerel 30 December 1773.
Do you know what source originally claimed "Acton Place, Devon" as John's place of birth?
