I already knew that my great grandad moved over from Ireland to Dundee, Scotland. Turns out our ancestors were to inherit a castle in the higlands during the time of the rebellion against england but as he joined the rebels he was disowned. Just shows how long we havebeen around eh.
K, I would like to learn more about your great grandfather.
I am a Sexton from County Clare In Ireland.
I don't know much of my surname's history. But my grandfather's father was born and actually moved from Ireland.
There is a whole group of Sextons, I think thats kinda funny, I MIGHT be related to some of you.
My Grandpa Harvey Sexton's family came over from Ireland. He had a big family all of which ended up who knows where. I would like to have more history of them but my Dad knows little about his Irish ancestry. I wish I knew more!
My ancesters were nobles in Limerick.

My ancestors were a two Sexton brothers who came to America in the 1600's, one went South and the other went North, my grandfather is Donald Sexton. @Alex, yeah, it's kinda crazy finding a bunch of strangers that you're related to.

My 8th Great Grandfather came from Limerick Ireland to The United States (New England) in the 1600's; his decedents then traveled south to Virginia and then into Georgia.
I am a Sexton from eastern Kentucky and it would seem that being from the area means I am of Melungeon heritage and considered it's own race.
