The origins of the Acklum name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in either of two parishes called Aclom in the county of Yorkshire.

Acklum Early Origins



The surname Acklum was first found in the north Riding of Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Aclam, an ancient village with a Church, a village which dates back to the bronze age. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 this land was held by the Count of Mortain from the King.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Acklum family emigrate to North America: William Andrew Acklam landed in America in 1750.
