Re: Spelling variation? Acklan, Ackland?
Jason, I have always assumed that the Acklands in our family spelt their name with a 'k', but after an elderly relative recently questioned it, I had another look at the family Bible. The entry for my g.g.g.grandmother reads 'Elizabeth Ackland was born April 15th 1790, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Acland',.Perhaps dyslexia runs in the Ackland/Acland/Acklan family, it certainly does in ours !
My Ackland/Acland family was from the Ottery St Mary/ Collumpton/Uffcombe area of Devon and looking on the LDS site the Ackland spelling seems more common in these areas. But I am now going to have to rethink my research!
