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 board.

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.
