My father's family came mostly from England, Ireland, Germany, France, and Scotland. The majority of my ancestors from this side immigrated in the 1600s and early 1700s, and settled mostly in RI, MA, MD, PA, NY, NJ, and WV. On that side, I am related to a governor of RI, Benedict Arnold, and his great-grandson, the traitor of the same name, by marriage. I'm also descended from English and French royalty and nobility through a distant ancestor on my grandmother's side, Lt. Nathaniel Felton. He was directly descended from a Knight of the Garter, Sir Thomas de Felton of Litcham, and had descent from an illegitimate half-sister of Philippa of Hainault, the le Stranges of Knockyn, the de Someries (ancestors of the Dudley family), the d'Aubigny Earls of Arundel, the Earls of Chester and Gloucester, the de Clares, the Marshalls, the de Beaumonts, the first Earl of Salisbury, Henry I and William the Conqueror, and Charlemagne and the Merovingians.

My mother's side, from what little information we have, came from England and Ireland, though my grandfather said he was part German too. Most of them settled in NC, SC, AL, and GA. My grandmother's a Carroll, but we don't know if she ties in with the Carrolls of MD or not; probably not.

Some of mine came from Ireland and settled in Texas (which is interesting).

I went to school with a girl who was from Texas. She was 100% Irish even through her family has been in this country since the middle 1800s.

I am mostly of Irish decent with names Flanary, Hagen, Glenn and others further back. The Flanary branch has been in this country since before 1750 first in NC and then in VA. My great-grandfather Hagen came to KY in the mid to late 1800s. I don't know when the Glenns came over but it was before then. I'm also Scots--Womack and Duncan, Welsh--Morgan, English--Penningtons who intermarried with the Flanarys quite a bit, and if you go back a ways Swedish--Dawson and French Hugenot--LeGrand. Those are the ones I'm aware of. There are lots more which my Dad could tell you about going all the way back to Brian Boru and Charlemane. As far as where my folks immigrated to, its mostly VA and KY.
