Re: Lord Acton, England
Lord Acton of England was a Lord-in-Waiting at the Court of Queen Victoria.He was also the grandson of Sir John Acton, who was the British envoy to the Kingdom of Naples and was the Prime Minister of Naples.When the royal family of Naples was sent into exile to Palermo, Sicily, he followed them there.Sir John Acton in Palermo, Sicily, in 1811.Sir John's wife was of a very influential family in the Austrian Empire.His wife remarried a Lord Granville, and moved to England.Sir John was a contemporary of Emma Lady Hamilton, Sir Horatio Nelson and Sir William Hamilton.
Incidentally, I am interested in info on your Lord Acton's sister, Elizabeth, who was married to Sir Richard Throckmorten.Also of interest, Lord Acton had a brother who became a Cardinal in the Roman Catholic church, and who returned to England to marry his sister, Elizabeth and Sir Richard.
Additional info on this Acton family can be found in Burke's Peerages.
Hope this helps.
