I don't know if I can shed any light on the subject but here goes. I
have been following the BARNETT name (and others) from the Midlands of
England to colonial Virginia, seemingly connected to my PACE ancestry
that also showed up in Middlesex Co. Virginia in the 1690s. Other
Shropshire surnames showed up in colonial Virginia, later Kentucky,
Missouri, Kansas, Texas.
I have a photo here of a Thomas Larkin Pace who married Hester Turner on
Feb.14, 1822, I think at Rushville, Missouri (Buchanan County) between
St. Joseph and Kansas City. Died Likely Pryor, Oklahoma (Mayes Co.) I
don't know the origin of his middle name. His ancestry goes back through
Middlesex Co. VA.
I was born in the Midlands of England myself, took part in a FTDNA test,
my results matched a large number of PACE descendents spread out across
the US. Their migration ancestor, a JOHN PACE of Middlesex Co. VA.
seemed already to be in my collection of PACE ancestry from Shropshire,
Christened 1665 at Wrockwardine, St Peters Church.
What I find rather fascinating, these other surnames of Shropshire that
I've been collecting, marriages, Christenings, death records; they also
show up in these aforementioned US colonial areas where this JOHN PACE
settled in the 1690s and seemed to stay with his descendents as these
surnames spread westward from these Virginia Counties.
Shropshire surname record collections:
BARNETT - BAUGH - CHIDLOW - CULLWICK - FURBER - GOODE-ARCH-PACE - GOODE
GREGORY - GROOM - HASSALL - HAYNES - ICKE - JAMES - LEE -
MADDOX/MADDOCKS - MILLINGTON - NICHOLS - PACE-Early-Records - PACE
EGGING - PALMER - PASCAL - PEDLEY - PICKEN - ROBERTS - SHUKER - SLINN -
SUMNER - TANDY-PACE - TURNER-PACE - TURNER-records - TURNER of
Wellington - WARD - WHITEHOUSE - WRIGHT
I'd be happy to discuss anything on this. One of my main interests is to
try and locate the migration ancestor and link the UK origins of the
family to the descendents wherever they migrated to.
