Re: Acton Lineages
I am tracing my family and they seem to come from that part of the country & I wonder if you either have a coat of arms or any information.
Jesse Acton - born about 1831 - most likely in Caton or Tarporley, Cheshire, he later moved to Liverpool where he worked as an insurance agent, although his occupation on his elder daughter's birth certificate (1872) shows Gentleman.
I have a gap in the tree but the family think they are connected back to Philip Acton, who I guess would come in around 1700-1750, the family says he came from Acton Bridge in Cheshire but I have no confirmation on this.The gap in the tree is because the family tried to prove a connection between Jesse and John Acton (Philip's grandson) who died in 1853.
Any information or arms that you may have would be gratefully received.
