Spelling variation? Acklan, Ackland?
My surname is ACKLAN, possibly a variation on Ackland, Acland, Acklam, as it seems quite rare.
My grandfathers name was Robert Benjamin Acklan, he was born 20 April 1912 in Southwark, UK. His mothers maiden name was Ebdon. He married Alice Maud Davies in Lambeth, 1938, before moving to Worthing. It was there that they had two surviving children called Robert and Richard, Robert being my father.
If anyone has any information or connection with my line of the Acklan family then please let me know.
