Peter, That's interesting. My earliest known Gill Y-DNA R1b ancestor died in Tivetshall St. Margaret, Norfolk, England. His birth year was about 1650. If he, Daniell or Daniel Gill, was generation 1, then I am the 10th.
It also seems interesting that the earliest paternal ancestor lived in the same county in England as the earliest known maternal ancestor, but at different times and different locations in Norfolk, England.
