The family folklore was "raised by wolves, descended from pirates". Contrary to the folklore we are shocked to discover the story unfolding below.
Prior to the following there are a lot of well known historical records.
According to WT:
Edward III is the 23th great grandfather of David.
Lionel (Plantagenet) of Antwerp KG (1338 - 1368) is the 22nd great grandfather of David.
Philippa (Plantagenet) Mortimer (1355 - 1382) is the 21st great grandmother of David
Elizabeth (Mortimer) Camoys (1371 - 1417) is the 20th great grandmother of David.
Elizabeth (Percy) Neville (abt. 1395 - 1436) is the 19th great grandmother of David.
Thomas Clifford (1414 - 1455) is the 18th great grandfather of David.
Starting over at Edward III, according to WT:
John of Gaunt is the 19th great grandfather of David
Richard Neville (Sir Richard "2nd Baron Latimer" Neville KB) is the 15th great grandfather of David
Joan (Beaufort) de Neville LG (1379 - 1440) is the 18th great grandmother of David.
George Neville (abt. 1414 - abt. 1476) is the 17th great grandfather of David.
Henry Neville (abt. 1437 - 1469) is the 16th great grandfather of David.
Richard Neville KB (1468 - 1530) is the 15th great grandfather of David.
Dorothy (Neville) Dawnay (1496 - 1532) is the 14th great grandmother of David.
Nicholas Gillington (1676 - bef. 1773). Born 1676 in Tunstall, Lancashire, England. Died before 16 Dec 1773 in Amelia County, Virginia. He descends from both the York and the Lancaster houses. His ancestor was a general for Charles I, and his family home was besieged by the forces of Cromwell.

I bushwacked a trail back to Deacon John Dunham, Sr. of Plymouth Colony, using MyHeritage, FamilySearch, Ancestry, and Geni (discovered your correspondence there as well).
Now the task will be to find sufficient sources and documentation to justify constructing the missing profiles on WikiTree, which I plan to start this weekend.
Let's stay in touch and keep each other briefed on what we find out.
Oh, and I'm curious how far back on the tree we're related. I know you wrote me your a fifth cousin to my maternal grandmother Lola Hardin [Sims-5104] What's the connection?

The merge was in 2014 (that info should be on the Changes page). It was completed & I didn’t remove the comment. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

DNA is hardly a scam, or useless, but like all science, it needs to be applied properly and its limits understood - autosomal DNA is very helpful for matches that are within the past ~~5-6 generations, and of course Y-DNA and mitochondrial DNA can go much, much farther back.
