Affiliated to: Ancestral Ackroyds and all updated records etc. can be found there.

Apparently, in Great Britain : Around 4575 people share the surname Ackroyd.
The surname Ackroyd is the 2485th most common name in Great Britain.
Not a lot of people know that!

And while you're here please sign the Guestbook and say Hi.

The information contained herein, appertains to the family tree of James (Jim) & Carol (nee Nolan) Ackroyd.
Immediately we have another surname, that of my wife Carol. Her maiden name is Nolan.
Then of course my mother's maiden name, Maloney. My grandmother's maiden name was Cunningham and so on, ad-infinitum. So you can see that there are numerous surnames when researching your family history.

It is my sincere belief that all Ackroyds are related (Barring the odd infidelity of course!) So if you are called Ackroyd or one of the variant spellings or have 'Ackroyd' blood in your veins, then chances are we are cousins. Hi cousin!! Don't forget to have a look at our 'Other Ackroyd Sites' page. If you have your own site, let us know and we'll link you up!

If you are looking at this site, then, chances are that you have at least a small interest in South Yorkshire. Why because that's where I was born and brought up and it's also where most of my ancestors lived. So, if you are in some way related to me and/or one of my ancestors or you would simply like to learn more about South Yorkshire, read on...
