Happy to look up any Dancey [census] records for English Dancy's -
if they tie in with my (10 years of) research on the Dancy's of Sussex and Surrey and some parts of London then I may be of more help as well.

Hi I've been wondering if the Dancey/Dancy's of Sussex/Surrey are connected to the Dancey clan of Gloucestershire/ Wiltshire. And indeed if any of them had ancestors who emigrated to Ireland as part of the post Cromwell settlments. My actual interest is the Irish Danceys, but they themselves were immigrants by mid/late 1600's

Hi Roz,

I have not seen any English records of Dancy's emigrating to Ireland nor of them removing to Wiltshire from Sussex or vice versae. Some Sussex Dancys moved to Gloucestershire in the 19th century but I have not come across records in your timeframe.

Hi Roz,

Agreed with Penny (our researches cover almost identical ground) I have not found any connection as yet between the two distinct groups of Danc(e)y families, although some of the Wiltshire one's further 'corrupted' their surname to Dauntsey. If there is a connection I would suggest it is pre 1550.
