Good luck with your research.If anyone on the forum is interested in DNA testing for genealogy, there is a FELL surname DNA study for males with the last name of FELL at Family Tree DNA, I am the study administrator and would be happy to answer questions.Perhaps a male Fell from your line would join the study and help us learn what link might exist between the Fells of Longland and the Fells of Dalton Gate.
