Do you have parents, grandparents and great grandparents birth years in Cheshire, UK?

What question(s) do you have about the Vernon ancestors?
Hi Amanda, would love to discuss this with you.  Three Vernon brothers emigrated from Cheshire to what is now Pennsylvania USA in 1682.  As was indicated by Cheryl, we are trying to sort out their lineage.  Unfortunately trying to work with my wife to deal with remote school during COVID for our two kids has put a serious crimp in my genealogy time!  It may be that we can help each other.  I am also in contact with two cousins (cousins of each other that is) that are Vernon descendants who live in the UK whose information may be of more immediate use to you.  

Take care,

Tony Vernon
If you go back far enough then two brothers Roger and Richard de Vernon came to England with the Duke of Normandy in 1066. Cheshire was their reward. They in turn were of Norman and Viking descent - the town of Vernon still sits on the River Seine.

Hi Amanda, and welcome to WikiTree. I know that it is overwhelming when you first come to a new group to research your ancestry.

Here at WikiTree, the next step for you would be to upgrade to a Family Membership (which is 100% free). Once you have upgraded, you should add Vernon as a tag.  There are already 2,245 Vernons on WikiTree. By adding Vernon as a tag, you will be instantly connected to those other Vernons, some of whom may be searching, or may have searched the same ancestors as you.

Once again, Amada, welcome to WikiTree, and have fun searching and sourcing.

Amanda, who are you looking into specifically?  Or, are you interested in helping out with the Vernon one-name-study?  Assuming you MAYBE come from the Vernon Quaker brothers?

Tony is the lead on this, please reach out.  There are a good bunch of folks that are attempting to find out/confirm the Quaker brothers' father.  Wikitree has linage past them, but there is a big dispute on the legitimacy on the parents of these brothers.
