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.
I'm a Sexton from NY but most my family comes from the south... My father (Herman) is from Virginia... I'm actually on my way to our Sexton Family Reunion...
So it's a surname from England, and we're not going to even mention the possible (and more likely) third origin "SAXON"?
I am from clover, south carolina. There are a good many Sexton around here in York County. I'm interested in learning more about my lineage. We are located about 30 min. from Charlotte, NC. Neat to see other Sexton on here!
