My ancestors did from County Cork.
Christopher Bryan Sexton
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 ancesters were nobles in Limerick.
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!
There is a whole group of Sextons, I think thats kinda funny, I MIGHT be related to some of you.
I don't know much of my surname's history. But my grandfather's father was born and actually moved from Ireland.
I am a Sexton from County Clare In Ireland.
K, I would like to learn more about your great grandfather.
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.
My dad came from Dundee and his granddad cam from co.monaghan Ireland. My dad said a relative possibly a cousin emigrated to America.
Hey long lost irish family whatsuupp
I've been looking all my life for a reason why I was put on this Earth....until now. I may be 15, but I'll be damned, my family is somewhat royalty? I don't believe what I'm saying or seeing...I cant believe it. . .I finally know why i am on this Earth....thank you God, and thanks to everyone who has the last name Sexton...now, I can be called one of your own and join your ranks as a Sexton, A TRUE SEXTON
Yeah. I know exactly how you feel. Now where I'm standing, I've got a strange photograph and I absolutely do not know what I am to do with it. Well thank you God, it is exactly like it.
Keep it, phrame it, and hold onto it. Make it a family eirloom or somthing man. but still, good to know that i'm not the only one out there XD
I am also a Sexton from my gramma's side. I have our family history of the Sextons back to 1700's Let's find all the Sextons and find out if we are related. It Seems strange that I may have someone elses family history within my own but who knows, we may be cousins... email@example.com or gilda hodges on facebook
I am a Sexton by Child birth. Am now living in Germany but proud to have a strong family name. Little confused about the family crest though as they seem to vary :-(. Just ordered an engraving, hope it is the right one otherwise my dad will be disappointed.
Don't want to burst anyone's bubble but family coats of arms are for the most part hoaxes created to make money from gullible people. http://genealogy.about.com/od/basics/ss/scams_5.htm
It doesn't matter if our family crest is a scam or now; we are family. No matter who are ancestors are, we are family, and we will remain family as long as the Sexton name still lives on.
I ment " Scam or not." Friggen keyboards dying.
Our Sextons came from lissycasy Clare tonAustralia mid 19th century. The coat of arms shows a horse shoe the wrong way up -not lucky but I have seen it the other way - up, which may mean I'll win the lotto sometime! Which is right?
My grandmother on my fathers side is Eve sexton from KY.
my grandparents live in louisiana. That's about all i know. I have always wondered if the last name sexton was from a different country.
My grandfather was born in Milltown Malbay, Co. Clare, Ireland. All of the Sextons in my family are Irish, not English. My mother, a Cleary, is also from Clare. My mom's side of the family likes to tease my dad that his family came over from England. My dad says there were two different Sexton clans, one Irish and the other English.
My family came from Rathkeale which is 17 miles outside Limerick on the road to Tralee. I now live in Australia and have a son, he has three sons and one of them has 2 sons, and so the name lives on.
