Participant ENGLISH
[Participant #E-0012] - Additional Information
  Personal Project Goal: To establish connection through DNA evidence between earliest ancestor James English (1781) to an earlier Westmoreland, VA resident, Walter English (arrived as indentured servant 1655)  
"As far as I know, the English family has always lived on this penninsula (the land lying between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay, in Virginia). The earliest known English arrived as an indentured servant in 1655. I have not been able to directly trace my ancestry to this person nor determine from what country he migrated. He arrived with three other indentured servants with very Irish sounding names but he could as easily have come from England. There is also a "rumor" that we may be descended from two or three English brothers who migrated to this area from the Norfolk, Virginia area.
There exist much "family tree" information scattered among several relatives but it has never been compiled into a comprehensive family tree. I believe it goes back to the early 1800s but I have not reviewed it.
I appreciate your effort but I believe tracking down Walter English may be too challenging. If any others in this group have ancestors from this part of the country I may be interested in knowing that."
