William Acton - continued above
Identifying this William as the above William is a bit presumptuous but seems reasonable. Visitation (Worcestershire, folio 20b) merely shows that the above William had issue whilst Visitation (Worcestershire, folio 176), which starts with this William, identifies him as "of Acton hall". However, Visitation (London), which starts with this William, describes him as "younger son of William Acton of Acton".
