I represent a small genealogy research group. It is our belief that all bearers of our name are relatives here in America. Although the roots are in UK. We have found only a few records that we can be linked to here in America. I have a home page at the Family Tree Maker site showing our family genealogy. The earliest verified ancestor is born in Virginia, 1751 William (Congrove) Congreve. I do believe we came to Amreica much earlier than this date. William Congreve being a very popular given name in an equaly small family in UK.
