There are Actons in Charles County, Maryland. |
: Hi, I'm new here. My 7th great-grandfather on
: my dad's side was Henry Acton II
: (1677-1742), born in Longnor, Shropshire,
: England. He was the son of Henry Acton and
: Hannah Corbet (family associated with
: Moreton Corbet Castle) and married Ann
: (Hannah Marriott Penn). He emigrated to PG
: County around 1700 and his family started a
: large tobacco plantation in southern
: Maryland. His granddaughter, Eleanor
: (daughter of Henry III) married into the
: Smallwoods. I'm descended from Henry II's
: son, John (1715-1770).
: I live near Fredericksburg, VA and would
: like to visit PG Co, but don't know what to
: look for relative to my interests there.
: Does anyone know if there are any remnants
: from this family to see there?
