Darrel has some correct information. There ultimately were three branches of the Elwyn family: one in WoodDalling, one in Thurning, and one in Heigham.

According to the 'Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica and the British Archivist, v. VI, Fifth series, p. 17-32' John Elwyn of WoodDalling, County Norfolk, born about 1450 married Catherine ?, their son Peter Elwyn born about 1480, died 1557 married Lucy ? who died before 1556. Peter's son John graduated from Cambridge University in England 1521-1522. He died about 1569. John's son was, William Elwyn, Sr. , no wife's name, probably died in 1556, his son William Elwyn,Jr of Heigham, who died in 1610-11, was married to an Alice who died in 1602/3. His son Thomas Elwyn, bapt. 1 May 1566 (Old Heigham (St. Bartholomew) Parish Register), died 7 Oct 1603. Thomas married Elizaabeth Benslye or Bencley in 24 Sep 1591 in Heigham. Elizabeth was buried 12 Jan 1605/6. Thomas's tomb was in the Heigham Church, but it was destroyed by the Germans during a bombing in 1942. Thomas had two more children by a second wife, Dorothy ?, named Mary, bapt. 1611, and John, bapt. 1612. their daughter Sarah married Michael Metcalf, Dornix Weaver of Norwich and they emigrated to Dedham, Massachusetts (Norfolk County) in 1637. Sarah died 30 Nov 1644 in Dedham, Massachusetts according to the First Church Records, Dedham, Massachusetts. Michael Metcalf and his wife and eight children: Michael, Thomas, Mary, Sarah, Elizabeth, Martha, Joane and Rebecca left on the 'John and Dorothy' of Ipswich, but were returned to England and then left on the 'Rose' of Yarmouth for New England.

If you would like me to send you the photocopies of these pages, I'll be happy to do so. Please let me know. My husband is descended from Sarah who married Michael Metcalf.

I'd LOVE copies of those pages! It sounds like a match for my son's 14th great-grandparents! Thanks!

Hi Cheryl

Sorry for the delay. It wasn't I who had the copies of the documents, my info came from Ancestral Files at www.familysearch.org (the LDS site).
See the 10 May 2009 post to the Elwyn board by
rrothwell, subj: Re: William Elwyn. Good luck.
