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
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,
