G'day John, It appears that I have not posted a reply to your message, until this. I have information back to a Richard Beckton, who was born about 1650 at Hayton,Cumberland, England. I would be most happy to exchange information with you, but suggest that we do it "off list". My email address is:- email@example.com
If anyone else is interested, they may contact me as well - tell me what information you have and what you are looking for.
My Beckton line goes from Cumberland to Scotland (Dumfriesshire) and then to Australia, eventually. As well as my direct line, two brothers of my great-great-grandmother came out to Australia, separately, and I have descendants of both of them available. I look forward to hearing more from you. Happy Hunting ;-) Arthur.
