I am a decendent of the English Stanilands who went to the U.S and became the Stanalands. I know this as my brother has had his DNA done and we have matched up with Stanalands in the U.S.
I am having trouble connecting the English family with the U.S family. I beleive that Hugh Staniland and his wife Mary (and maybe Hugh's brothers John and Thomas) left England around 1660. I think my family are decended from a brother or sister that stayed in England.
Do you have information on the move to the U.S? I would appreciate any info that you have.
I live in B.C. Canada.
