Thank you for this invaluable information. We have tracked one side of my mother's family back to the mid 1500's and on my fathers side have tracked it back to about the same period as the spelling of the surname had changed on his mothers side over time. We arrived in North America (USA)before the Mayflower in 1620. It appears it was the late 1590's to early 1600's when my family actually set foot in what is now the United States. Very interesting that we can begin to pull the rest of the puzzle together thanks to your help! Again, I appreciate all you have done. Please keep in contact as I may need further help down the line.
