Are you sure about the line from this Assheton to your own is direct ancestry? There were quite a lot of branches of Asshetons, pretty near all over Lancashire, and your inscriptions, etc seem to relate to more than one line. It's very hard to be "certain" so far back, for most families - the records often don't quite link up.
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

That's pretty fantastic, so rare that such continuity is proved and possible. So you will be aware, as I stated, of the many different families in Lancashire / Cheshire with the surname Assheton, and the same first names linking through.
I just thought I'd check, as people can get so disappointed when what they thought was "their" family suddenly turns out not to be exactly that, and it often happens with landed / minor gentry families. Not in any way intending to devalue your research. I do hope you find the ones you seek, as you will obviously know, the further back, the harder! Happy hunting.

I very much agree with what you have said, and that's why we need to listen to the old ones as they hold important keys that unlock those locked doors,
if its worth doing , do it right and stay true to your self and never give up. :)
