In plowing through the records I've developed some of the early generations of this family, starting from the visitations and parish registers, and finally from wills.Our years don't intersect yet; I've only done wills up to the 1650s, but there are some nice namesake possibilities in this line.
PLEASE, please, Matt, I hope you'll join the Daniel DNA project and test!DNA testing is giving real answers to searchers and we so need testers from all around the world.This is a great time to test because Family Tree DNA has holiday discounts through 31 Dec.The European branch isn't offering the discount on as many of the tests as the US branch, but ordering the US branch test from Europe means longer times and separate postage costs.I don't know which way works out better in terms of cost, but I actually suspect it's via the US test.The sites are: US - http://www.familytreedna.com/http://www.familytreedna.com/ (go to the Daniel project from there to see the group prices and discounts. Europe - http://www.igenea.comhttp://www.igenea.com (be sure to find the Daniel group price discounts, it takes a bit to get to them.
The project website is at http://danieldna.50g.com/http://danieldna.50g.com/ The results are only as of Jul 08; the participant descriptions are voluntary and are pretty out of date, but you'll get a sense of the project.
Tests from documented British lines would be a most welcome boost to the ongoing search!When more tests and matches show up then the British lines will start getting established and cleared up, just as various US lines have done.And of course, US searchers really need British tests to help us make the leap back.
So here's what I've found on the Flitton gang, hope the format goes through, the "bef" death dates are based on will probate dates:
