Well, I got quite a shock with DNA to find out I am related to the USA De la Field's, as my family came from Bethnal Green, London up to 1907 or so. I was told they were Hugeonots. But that went out the door with the DNA. But Thomas Field 1694 did marry a Hugeonot. So I have tracked everyone on the DNA list from various sources, over a hundred, and they all arrive at John the Astronomer. Thomas 1696, to my best knowledge was married at Threadneedle Church, French protestant, and I have actual physical paper that backs up that Thomas 1743 and David 1784 were his descendants. I have the dates of death of both Thomas and jane his wife in David's handwriting. So once I found I was related to all of you I knew where to look for Thomas's birth. Every other Thomas was eliminated by death or other means, and I came to Thomas St. Giles 1694, and that tracked back, John 1665 St. Giles John 1628 St. Giles..John son of Theophilus So I see nothing to suggest that anyone knew of a family for John 1600. But my DNA is like between 11 cM and 18 cM connected, and the London crowd in the time between John the Astronomer and the people who left for the USA is very slim. In short I have 10 years into looking into this. Thomas 1694 had son Thomas 1743, St Matthews, who had son David 1784, who had son John 1820 and James 1818 (who left for Australia). John 1820 was one of the founding employees of the Royal Livers Friendly Society, and his son William, 1854 was the Sr Managing Member of the Management Committee, who was in charge when the Royal Livers Building was built and completed 1911. He died 1916. His son William came to Canada with his wife. If anyone wishes to dispute my path, well I would rather hear about it now, but I have over 60 DNA markers back to John the Astronomer's family.
