William Strother [[Strother-242]] is a Southern Colonies profile, and asserts he died in Virginia. He's attached to Lancelot Strother & Eleanor Conyers for parents ...

"A Hist. of Northumb.," (1873), states that William, son of Lancelot Strother & Elenor Conyers was:

  •  living in 1631 
  •  ''of Canno Mill''
  • and left a will 1667

There's a comment on [[Strother-242]] which disputes that William Strother who died in Virginia is son of Lancelot & Eleanor. ... 

So... are there two different Williams?

The William Strother Society funded Y-DNA testing to determine the answer to this question a good many years ago (before testing became popular). The initial tests showed that the imm William Strother of K Geo Co VA is not a close enough match to the Strothers of Northumberland ENG for him to have been a son of Lancelot. More testing of various European Strothers has been done over the years and the closest DNA matches so far are said to be in Scotland. The DNA committee for the Society is the the best source for the latest information on this question.
