Do you have any further information on the Cecils of England and their migration here? I am descended from William Witten (b. 1787 Virginia). Both of his parents are Cecils. His father James Witten was the son of Thomas Witten and Elizabeth Cecil (though some on this website have said his mother was Ann???) William Witten's mother was Elizabeth Cecil, daughter of John Cecil and Elizabeth Sollers. I have seen some unofficial connections to William Cecil, Lord Burghley (1520-1598)the advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. I'd like to verify this.
