I notice that you cite John Gayden (1618-1675) as the father of Ralph Gayton (1654-aft. 1682) and that Ralph Gayton died in 1690. Do you have a source for these? While I have several citations for the period I have not been able to make a connection. If you have other information on this John Gayden I would appreciate it since his birth date would indicate it is likely he was born in England. Thanks.
