Hi, I am confused as I alway's thought Diggory Ashton was a direct ancestor of mine. Apparently, he may not be. Has anyone in the Ashton family have his name on their family tree. Regard's from Carole.  Ashton-1288

Hi Frank, thank you for all the work you have done for me, I did have some info, but not all. Do you know where I can find who Diggory's parent's were ?. Again, thank you, from Carole.      Ashton-1288

I did not find the parents at familysearch.org

It could be that Ancestry.com or another Ashton researcher would have it.

Hi Frank, thank's for trying anyway, I'll get there one day. Regard's from Carole.   Ashton-1288
