Thanks for replying to my Thornborough etc. note. I am no expert on this line but can tell you what I know about my Thornborough/Thornbury/Thornburgh, etc. family. I have made three trips to England most of the time exchanging houses with the descendants there.
I have a copy of theMarionand Delmar L. Thornburybook and two other unpublished "books"with spellings of Thornbury, Thornborough, Thornburgh, and several ohter spellings, but have never found a Thornber spelling among any of them. My own unpublished book is still in an unfinished format, but begins with the 1400 era. No where nor from anyone have I found a Thornber spelling before. Also, most of my data is from the English lines down to the Roland who wound up in Baltimore, Maryland. That Roland owned much of what is now Baltimore beginning at Thornbury Lake, etc.I live in Calverton, just south of Baltimore and would be glad to let you see what I have on that line. I am writing a book now that will include that line beginning with me on to the Roland and Ann who migrated to Maryland and first lived near my Elledge ancestors there. I descend from Elizabeth Thornburgh, daughter of Roland's son, John. Elizabethmarried Thomas Elledge and they were parents of Thornberry Elledge and on down to me.Do you have some particular Thornber connected to a Thornbury of any spelling?I also have a book of the Thornburg line which said the descendants were from Thornburgh/Thornborough, etc, but I could nevernever find a connection, but THAT book author changed the spellings of all the official and proven Thornburgh or Thornboroughs to Thornburg.In ENgland the First Son used the Thornborough spellling and siblingsused the Thornbury or Thornburgh spelling.
I have just today come home from the eye doctors from having the stitches out from my Glaucoma and cataract surgery so it will be a while before I can see well enough to try to help find a connection.I am typing with one hand while I hold magnifying glass with the other, so please excuse spelling, etc. errors.cynthia@snider;org, 13003 Bellevue St., Beltsville, MD 20705 a week or so before I can get back into my data in case you would like to see what I have. I am familiar with Selside as well as Hampsfield. and with the cooperation of a professor from England who spent some time in USA teaching, I was able to get official records copied that took my research back the earliest of the name in Selside which it turned out is where they all lived earlyand before they had Hampsfield. I can't recall right now the exact earliest date I have but it was before 1427 and I have never seen or heard of the Thornber spelling in connection with eitherThornborough or Thornbury which had all kinds of spellings as they had the buryor borough endings. My line came from the families who were first known by those names in Selside. I suppose you already know that even now there is a history ofTHAT line that goes back to the invasion of England by the
