      • Possibly the village of Sporle, in County Norfolk. Another ancestor lived in the village of Tickleford in Dorset during the reign of Henry VIII and his great-grandson also came over to America in Winthrop’s 1630 fleet, possibly on the same ship; his daughter married the son of the ancestor from Sporle. I also have a female-line ancestor who fought on the rebel 😉 side at the Battle of Lexington and his family originally came from the area of Kirkoswald in Carlisle in the 1500s. Sadly all the oldest church records there were destroyed so that’s as far back as I can go with that line. :-/ My earliest British known ancestor was born about 1400.
