Surnames: Cromwell, Argentine, Ross, Cram, Shaw, Smith, Burleigh
Seek fellow descendants of English village beer brewer, Oliver Cromwell; uncle and namesake of Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protecter of England. I descend the brewer's descendant, Mrs. Argentine Cromwell Ross, by her New England, USA, marriage 11-28-1662, to Benjamin Cram, Sr.; by their son Benjamin Cram, Jr., who 12-30-1666, wed Sarah Shaw, and had Charity Cram who 7-25-1728, wed Josiah Smith, Sr., and had Mrs. Hannah Smith Burleigh. Argentine is an old family last name; but I do not know how it fits in with the Cromwells?

Hello, cousin,
We share the same ancestry you outlined below. Beyond the lineage you shared from William and Hannah Smith Burleigh, were John, William, John, John, Louise (my Grandmother).

I found your post searching around for background on the Argentine/Uncle Oliver Cromwell connection. Found this:

Further support for your search; but I've found little else besides conjecture. Please drop me a note if you have additional information or wish to share further information about the Burleigh line.

PS: I traveled to Scotland last Summer with my Son; visited Burleigh Castle... Google it ;-)
Regards,
Jonathan
