My ancestor Robert James Acton seemed to have owned it from the 1841 census - 1871 census. He is listed as a victualler, builder and bricklayer. He seems to have also been a constable in the "village" of Acton and latterly the Church Warden and appeared at a House of Commons enquiry into the setting up of a national police force - having taking it upon himself to set up a small private force for their own town which had proved very successful. ***
