  • First-hand information. Entered by Sharon Smith at registration.

born in new hampshire parrents george henry smith and lorrane ellen corliss. my cousin babara introduced me to genealogy, gave me a book on corliss history, going back to 1600's.

started me on my path to find past family. in this age of technology information available on so many subjects. with this help and families seaching for roots helped me to find and connect to my past.

started with learning about my grandfathers family and then looked into smith's. happy to find pilgrim connections with hopkins, doty, and cooke's families.

im still in beginners stage even after a year researching. enjoy the detective work and rewards of finding famlies.

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for the FindAGrave post for Thomas Faunce.

I'm guessing you may be Mayflower Society-qualified through either Faunce or Doty. Have you investigated that? I ask because I'm working on that myself. Sharon

Relationships are based on shared ancestry. The first common ancestor we found for Benjamin Cooke and Lori Cook is Henry Webb.

Hi Sharon, thanks for the links on my profile page. One of them ( is our own web site (I manage the Haviland - de Havilland Heritage Society), one of them (at Historum) is actually my own thread as I was farming people for academia on the name Avilant as it relates to references in the Middle East (which probably have no relationship to our name), and the last one (about Havilland Hall) is a narrative I almost know by heart (I'm friends with the descendants of the builder of Havilland Hall). But if you find more stuff let me know!! I appreciate the help!

Thank you Sharon for the link to the early families of Taunton. My Smiths were late comers in comparison, probable 1853 and 1861. They first landed in Charlottetown, PEI in 1831 and three later moved to Taunton in search for work. I found their family plots in the Mayflower Cemetery.

Interestingly, my grandfather was born in Taunton and appears as Noname Smith in the records and his family moved back to Charlottetown shortly after the birth. His parents left a confusing trail saying he was born in PEI in the subsequent census. I never understood why they "lied" about his place of birth.

Thanks for the St Mary, Cricklade info Sharon, you weren't to know but I bought the parish transcriptions in four booklets from the church a few years ago; I didn't know the web site was still going! My great great grandmother was Elizabeth Allen, born in Harwell, Berkshire, England in 1820. Generally the Allens were from Berkshire, with a few from surrounding counties. They married into the Fawkes and Cuss families in Cricklade.

I haven't made a connection to the USA through the Allen line yet.

Thank you for the link to your Llwynypia search results. Actually, there is good historical and DNA evidence for a connection between the Peeblesshire Lynes and the village of Lynde in French Flanders, while I have never seen anything to suggest a connection between Scottish Lynns and Wales.

On 23 Jan 2016 at 21:01 GMT Loretta (Lynn) Layman wrote:

Also, while some Lynns in Ireland were actually O'Floinns/O'Flynns, a great many Scottish Lynns, Linns, etc. were established in Ulster, Ireland as early as 1600 and possibly before. This page documents just a few of them.

Thank you for your messages Sharon. I've studied the Lynns, Linns, etc. of Scotland & Ulster for 35 years (amassing 500 pages of historical data) & also am the administrator of the Lynn/Lyne/Linn/Lind Y-DNA project at FamilyTreeDNA. We have nearly 40 men in the project from not 3 but 9 totally unrelated Y-DNA haplogroups. There are *at least* 3 totally unrelated Lynn haplogroups just in Scotland. The surname database page you sent states, "The second origin [of the name Lynn] is Celtic Scottish, and locational. It is either from an old manor called Lyne in Peebleshire, or from the ancient castle of Lin in Ayrshire." The Peeblesshire family preceded the Ayrshire family & was not Celtic. They had Anglo-Norman connections & likely had migrated up from England.

Thanks for the information about John Careless Sharon. Unfortunately making the connection between John Careless of 1745 and John Careless of 1555 will be quite a task; there are very few verifiable sources out there! Still at least I am aware of 1555 John, so I can attempt to find a documented linkage accross the 200 years now.

Sharon, thanks for posting the information about Capt. Isaac Carr. Everyone seems to know all about his wife, Phebe and her ancestry, but I'm at a dead end on Isaac's side. I've had the Carr yDNA test done with my brother. The results show that my Carr surname is I1 whereas Phebe's Carr ancestry is R1b1b2. So if they are "cousins" as I have read, then their relationship comes through a different surname. I've considered that Isaac could have been taken in by a Carr family and given the name. He may not be a Carr after all. If he is a Carr, then he descends from a totally different line. I've added both Family Finder and 23andMe tests to the mix in the hope that I will eventually get a match.
