How do I find family in a time frame (Historical) that has NO records kept by church???
I have been searching for my famliy orig. I and 12 others have taken YDNA testing, 7 of us have taken Y-700 test. We have confirmed our Haplogroup Terminal SNP as (Brown, R-FT392290 and R-FT391456) . The FT391456 is the older of the two and FT392290 is a descendant. Both are subclade of R-DF83, R-M269, FT392290 is only found in England, Northumberland 110 AD , the FT391456 shows up in France about 2700 AD before moving to England. i presume from historical YDNA mapping the Romain invasion of England 43AD thought the southern English coast around what is now Kent. FT391456 may have followed or been apart of the invasion.
Archeological sites and testing for YDNA found FT392290 dating around 110 AD.
MY question was how and why did they move to Wiltshire co England?
There is the little ice age that occurred from 900 AD to 1300 AD, but did not affect Wiltshire co., could that be the answer????
During this period those in Agriculture would need to move to warmer climate as well as others types of work.
So some where between 1300 AD and mid 1500's the Brown family (FT392290 and FT391456) moved to Wiltshire co.
Why Wiltshire co. Eng. With help from the Wiltshire Family Historical Society three family names were found in parish registers. Durnford, Wiltshire co. Eng.
Parish registers showed:
Richard Browne b: 01/10/1607 Durnford, Wiltshire co. Eng. d: April, 1661 Newbury, Mass. father Anthony Browne estimated b: 1586 d: bef. 1612
Michael Browne b: 09/20/1612 Durnford, " " " d: 06/14/1655 Figheldean, Wiltshire. Eng. father Willm Browne estimated b: 1592 d: bef. 1613
George Browne b; 04/03/1614 Durnford, " " " d: 08/01/1642 Newbury, Mass. father George Browne estimated b: 1593 d: ??
Estimated birth of the father Mr. Browne b: 1566
Anthony, Willm, George ; three brothers, had three brothers. Anthony's wife became willm's, who then became George's wife.
Another event was the migration to Massachusetts by a group of persons from Wiltshire Co. lead by Rev. Parker, 1633 they were gathered together on the "Mary & John" in Southampton Harbor. Ships register shows Richard and George Browne. Arrived 1634 Ipswich, Mass.
From here I have documentation and YDNA of decendents.
Since there were no Records by church of Births, Marriages, Deaths prior to 1538 and then only listing child and father with Date and parish. AND the historical events with Romain occupation until 410 AD, then the Vikings arrived and the Little ice age..and move again not to mention Illness, Wars,.....
Just thought I would put it on paper and sound it out....
