over 4,100 families

Richard was born in England around 1722 - but we don't know where.  Y-dna evidence from his descendants shows a completely different pattern from the possible English lines identified so far.  Thus we are still looking

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.
