Like many on this forum, I am a descendant of Theophilus Elsworth and his Dutch wife, Annetje Jans. Having never found any researched data on his ancestry, I am checking A2A records (http://www.a2a.org.uk/default.asp) from 17th century England to find other Elsworths. Perhaps eventually a match will be made to Theophilus.
