Hacon family tree
The Hacon Family were landowners and farmers in Ludham in the 19th Century. In 1834 (or possibly 1839), they built The Grange, a large farmhouse on the Catfield Road adding it to a block of existing stables (which are still there). At one time it was the largest farm in Ludham.

William Hacon built The Grange in the1830s. It was later sold to the Fitz-Hugh family. In 1972 one of the fields belonging to the former farm was built on and is now Grange Close. Ludham Hall was also known as “The Grange” in the distant past. This can be very confusing so watch out for this.
In Whites 1883, Herbert Jeffrey Hacon is a farmer in Ludham.

Note the spelling of Martha Hylton varies in the records. Sometimes as Hilton or Hilson.
