Hi Group:

There have been several interesting postings on the Ashton family
connection to Col. Peter Ashton of Virginia (d. 1671). Does anyone know if
Col. Peter Ashton is related to Charles Ashton, (d. 1672), Justice of the
Peace and Captain of the Militia of Northumberland County, Virginia? I have
checked Northumberland County Records and have not found a connection between
the two. What is of interest is that near Nominy Creek in Northumberland
County is the tombstone of Col. Henry Ashton (b. 1671, d. 1731), grandson of
the above Charles. Supposedly there is a coat of arms on Henry's tombstone
that is suppose to be the same as the Ashtons of Chadderton in the county of
Lancashire, England. Does anyone have an information on the ancestry of this
Charles Ashton?

Thanks in advance for your help.
