I have been tracing my Ayrton family roots for some time. I am descended from a Richard Ayrton born 4th Dec 1761. His family had a farm in Litton. The family goes back to 1660 in Arncliffe Yorks. with the patriarch being being Edmund born 1660 coming down the male line, there was Henry born 1686; John born 1726; Richard born 1761; Richard born 1821. Richard born 1821 married Catherine Tennant in 1853. Catherine was born in Kettlewell York.
Catherine & Richard had 8 children - one of which Alice - was my Great grandmother who married a John Priestley.
Does anyone fit into this family line?
