Good pickup,A-R. In fact, Sexton as a surname frequency in today’s
world is highest in south west Ireland with pockets in north east and
east Ireland.
Then scattered across all of England with the highest frequency in
south east England. And then Sexton is scattered across much of
Western Europe from Germany down to Andalusia, Spain.
It’s interesting that the Reddin surname (with that spelling) has
much of the same surname frequency distribution today with a slightly
higher frequency occurrence in Andalusia than Sexton.
