Yes, I have also heard a similar story. If you have the sourcefor this I would be grateful. Also I have had a reply from someone related to Edward who took a DNA test, and it connects them to Ainsworth Manor. This being said would you happen to know who Edward Ainsworth's father is? I have read about Ainsworth Manor and they were into growing cotton and weaving around a certain time. I wonder if Edward being a younger son was sent over to the new world to harvest cotton and send it back to the manor?
