My Acton family came from Dublin for several generations.
My father was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1940. His family moved to Belfast, N.Ireland abt.1947 & later to Glasgow, Scotland abt.1952. His parents were Herbert ffoliot Acton, (b.1914; Dublin) & Ruth Patricia Williamson (abt.1910; Dublin or Belfast).
My g-grandfather was Joseph Acton (abt.1860; Dublin). He was Protestant. My g-grandmother, Grace Dennison (b.1874; County Sligo?), was Joseph's 2nd wife after he was widowed abt.1910. I believe that he had at least 8 children with his 1st wife. 3 of these were: Ellie (Eleanor?) -b.1881; Dublin Joseph - b.1882; Dublin William - b.1884; Dublin
I believe that there was another son possibly called Desmond Acton who emigrated to America, but I have no further details about him so far.
My grandfather also had a sister called Constance (Connie) (abt.1916; Dublin), who I think lived all her life in Dublin City.
If anyone has any info at all that might be linked to any of these I would love to hear more.
