My Lance ancestry ends with John Knapp Lance who died approx. 1781

+4 votes
in Depfort, Kent, England. He was married to Edith with no surname. They had several children. Christopher Holmes Lance was born in 1742 Sussex, New Jersey. I believe they had another child named Edith, Elizabeth and maybe Anne.I believe they came to the Colonies and some of their children stayed, but the parents returned to England, because of a sick child who needed better medical care where they died. It is a dead end with John Knapp assuming he is the correct father for Christopher. So I am at a dead end when I get to England.  That seems to be the case with some other family members also. When I get to Europe it is a dead end.  Any suggestions? Anybody else related to these Lance s?
