Re: ACKERMAN to ACRES ?
Did the surname ACKERMAN become ACRES somewhere?
I recently stumbled on a website with updates & corrections to Savage's work about the First Settlers of New England.http://ccat.sas.upenn.eduhttp://ccat.sas.upenn.edu
This provides the name ACRES, or ACKERMAN, HENRY, Newburym HANAH d/o Thomas SILVER
Also JOHN, Boston, 1656, resid Muddy River, now Brookline, removed later to Dunstable.Married prob before 1664 to Desiretruth d/o Wm THORNE of Boston.Had 8 children, 6 bapt Boston, the last two born in Dunstable.
I am seeking the pedigree of JOHN WILLIAM ACRES b abt 1823 Boston.D 1888 Malden, MA.Married to Eliza Ann Bellamy in Boston abt 1842.
He may be a son of George T Acres & Hannah French.
Can anyone connect the Ackermans to the Acres?
I have been unsuccessful locating a pedigree of John William Acres to an immigrant ACRES.
