Re: Coton surnname in Spain, England 1700's
Your information was very interesting.My family is from Santiago de Compostela.My grandfather, Luis Coton, came to the United States in the very early 1900's from Santiago de Compostela.He left behind 3 unmarried aunts who lived together in that area until their deaths.My parents last visited them on their honeymoon in 1960.I understand that the last of the three aunts has passed away.
My grandfather died in 1960 before I was born, so I know little of the family history from Spain.Your information may explain why so many people with the Coton surname are from France.
Are you also related to the Coton family from Santiago de Compostela?I would be interested in learning more if you have more information.
I look forward to hearing from you.
