Re: Henry Cleal- England >Lasalle County IL
Hello, You would be surprised where you may find those of the Cleal name. My ancestor was living in Middlesex before he emmigrated to the United States. He had children born there. Some of his Grandchildren then emmigrated to Canada. As a child, I had been told the name but thought it was extremely rare. I was stationed in Germany and an English genealogist there told me it was French. He was very wrong. Keep on searching you will be very surprised at what you find. I don't have a lot of information on the Cleals, other than my own family. Keep your eyes and ears open, the person beside you may be a Cleal descendant. Take care.
