Im the administrator for this board, thought it was time to get us all together in one place !
Those of us researching this family have found that most of our ancestors settled in the Cumberland...but where did they come from ?
Suprise ! We are probably English, with a long history in Hampshire..Eastleigh, Otterbourne and Southampton area...dating back to the time of the Domesday Book in 1066 !
The varient spellings of the name post date the Domesday entry. Boyd being one that was started in Kentucky in 1800's.
Hope you all can use this info.
