Hello to the Alston family in the USA this message opens an exciting new search for the true ancestors of Col John Alston of co Chowan NC
I am an Alston descendant from the Edwardstone, Suffolk family and have been researching for some 20yrs. However my family before me have been collecting the Family History for more than 100yrs.
You can follow this on my website www.thekingscandlesticks.com you may have seen it, it had 639,631 hits last year.
A new opportunity arrived in 2013 when I discovered in the London metropolitan Archive that John Alston of Pavenham, thought to have emigrated to co Chowan North Carolina, was in fact apprenticed in London as a barber/surgeon and died there in 1710
My interest is in the English family but I am keen to help the search for the correct links between the British & American families. This is the link to the John Alstons on my website many of whom are unaccounted for: http://www.thekingscandlesticks.com/webs/pedigrees/names6.htmlhttp://www.thekingscandlesticks.com/webs/pedigrees/names6.html
I believe the answers are to be found in the USA, many genealogists in America stopped looking in the last 100 years preferring to accept Joseph Groves baseless assumptions. Now we have the opportunity to find the truth.
