Other Taylor lineages Investigated

Cheshire Taylors

  1. Robert Taylor (1480 Cheshire, ENG -1562 Cheshire, ENG) + xxx
  2. Thomas Taylor (1524 Cheshire, ENG - 1575 Cheshire, ENG) + xxx
  3. John B Taylor (1550 Cheshire, ENG - Cheshire, ENG 1627 Cheshire, ENG) + Joan Gatliffe
  4. Lawrence Taylor (1584 Cheshire, ENG - 1627 Cheshire, ENG) + m2 Cecily Ridgeway
  5. Abraham Taylor (1630/1638 Cheshire?, ENG - 1692 Accomack, VA)) + ?

While accepted by some researchers of this family, recent evidence indicates the four generations A-D shown above may not be the paternal ancestors of #E. A reasonably exhaustive search of Cheshire parish registers has failed to find a record of an Abraham Taylor, son of Lawrence Taylor  -- or, indeed, of any Abraham Taylor baptized in the appropriate time frame.

Note: These Taylors lived in the parish of Great Budworth and specifically in the hamlet of Clatterwick. Some sacraments were observed in the nearby "chapel of convenience" at Little Leigh, which functioned sporadically.

Accomack Taylors

  1. Abraham Taylor (1630/1638 Cheshire?, ENG - 1692 Accomack, VA) + Deborah Keachine or Ketchme (1744 Wiltshire, ENG - 1686/1692 Accomack, VA)
  2. Abraham Taylor (1661 Accomack, VA - ? Somerset, MD?)

Nor, is #E the father of #1 (Abraham) above. Newly available DNA evidence is that the direct filial descendants of #s E & F are Y haplogroup J2, whereas the filial descendants of #6 are R1b. This excludes #E as being the father of #1 above.

Further research shows that #F was living in Somerset County at the same time that #1 was living in Baltimore County, on opposite sides of Chesapeake Bay.
