I came upon this Forum as I have just proved my Acorn ancestry.My great grandmother was Clara Eugenia Acorn.She married Thomas Frederick Campbell.Her parents were Matthew and Ellen Acorn. Clara was born in Montreal in Canada in 1865. Her sister Mary was born in Quebec in Canada in 1863.The family, however, are from Trowbridge in Wiltshire, here in England, so I may not be related to anyone in this forum.The name does seem fairly rare, however, so perhaps?Matthew was from Trowbridge while his wife, Ellen, was from Dublin, Ireland.As he seems to have moved around a lot (another boy Frederick was born in Dover, Kent, in England) I am going to investigate whether he was in the army.This would explain the childrens births being all over the place. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who suspects they may be in the same 'tree'! Stephanie.
