I'm looking for information on the ancestry of Thomas Perkins and Nathaniel Perkins of Dover, New Hampshire from the early 1600s; especially how it might relate to the Perkins family from Hillmorton, England - I haven't found any evidence that can connect this Thomas Perkins to a specific family in England. I found existing profiles for them, and added a few basic sources to Nathaniel, but other than that I don't have much solid to go on.
I have a DNA connection to several other people, and so far the only ancestry we've found in common is the Perkins family - but it's quite distant. My line goes through John Perkins of Ipswich (Perkins-122), and another match is through Isaac Perkins of Ipswich (Perkins-50), John's uncle. This makes the MRCA Thomas Perkins (Perkins-1338) b about 1535. Now I have another match of the same DNA segment that is descended from the Thomas and Nathaniel line in Dover, so I'm trying to discover if they're any actual records to support the idea that the two Perkins families were related.
Finally, since this common ancestor is so far back, I'd be interested in finding any other matches with Perkins ancestry to help support the idea that this DNA segment really is from the Hillmorton Perkins family. It's a long shot for any particular descendant to get a DNA segment from that far back, but they also have a lot of descendants listed on WikiTree; so if anyone has Perkins ancestry and they'd like to compare DNA, let me know, or just check my profile for my Gedmatch ID.
