Welcome to the Ireton Family Resources web-site, a resource where you
share Ireton Genealogy information, and can contact other members of
the Ireton family.
My branch of the Ireton family is from the north west of England, more
specifically north Lancashire and south Cumbria (or Westmorland as it
used to be named). For the Ireton family this area, holds a potentially
significant interest. In seems that in the 19th century there was a
general confusion between the names Ireton and Irton. As you will see
on my Family Tree my earliest traced ancestors are John Irton 1790-1872
and his son Roger Irton 1824-1883.
If anyone can shed more light on the fungibility of the Ireton and
Irton names please add your comments to the bulletin
Some 70 miles from where my family lives is Irton Hall which it is
estimated was occupied by the Irton family for some 500 years, from
the 14th century to the 19th century. I will take some digital photographs
the next time that I visit my family in England.
Irton Hall is located in the Irton parish in north west Cumbria and
more information can be found in this description
of the parish from the turn of the 20th century.
Another great resource for Genealogy information from this region on
the British Isles is is the Cumberland
and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society, (CWAAS).
As a side not fro those of you not familiar with this region neither
Cumberland nor Westmorland exist anymore. These two old counties are
now both part of the present day county of Cumbria.
Finally, I would like to share the information that I have collected
together on the genealogy of the Ireton family. A cousin of mine has
traced our ancestors as far back as John Irton b.1790. Please view this
family tree for my branch of the Ireton
family. I also provide some information on the
Irtons of Irton Hall as I regard this family as part of my Genealogy.
We have not yet linked my Ancestors to the Irtons of Irton Hall.
If you have any comments or questions relating to this information
I ask that you provide them in the bulletin
board on this web-site. Also, please feel free to use the guest
book to both leave your contact information, and to contact others
with interests in the history and genealogy of the Ireton family.
