Acklam

Acklam

“It is no improbable conjecture that this place was originally called Acklam (qu. Oaklam, villa quercuum) from its situation in the time of the Britons, as being a town or dwelling surrounded with a forest of oaks: or, it might be so named (qu. villa lutosa) from its clayey soil.”

J. Graves
1808
