 Sexton Family Origin

from the New York Passengers List

The highest concentration of Sexton's in the UK appear to be in London and in Norfolk County, England. After that it's Lancashire, Suffolk, Essex, and Middlesex counties. In Scotland, the highest concentration is shown in Lanarkshire and Angus. After that, it's Renfrewshire, Fife, Midlothian and Aberdeenshire.
