Re: Coton surnname in Spain, England 1700's
Yes, I´m related to the Coton family from Santiago de Compostela,but I have not contact
with them. My grandfather is from Santiago as all his family (brothers, sisters, and so on), but he went to Madrid to work and my father,uncles and aunts were born in Madrid and I was born in Madrid some years after. So my family came from Santiago but I don´t know then. Although my father knows then, and he went several times to visit part of the family.
The story I wrote was the result of my grandfather´s brother investigation in the 50´s. He told it to my grandfather, and my grandfather to me.
That´s all I know, if you want more information you should look for someone who still live in A Coruña ( where Santiago de Compostela is)
