John, a member of the largest line, with descendants tested for the UK1 pattern Y-dna left Padbury, Buckinghamshire to travel to Canada sometime between 1841 and 1852. his parents were:

Father William Bandy1   b. 16 Apr 1775, d. Oct 1847
Mother Elizabeth Wells    b. c 1768, d. Oct 1836

The lines we have shown here are some of the largest lines originated before 1800 which we have not been able to link to any other yet. Only Y-dna testing will help us show if they are truly separate families or members of the main line.  There are many other lines and small groups in England which are still a puzzle to us. Time does not permit listing them all here at the moment.
