Wondering if anyone has made any progress in documenting Francis Brayton's (the first one in the US) ancestry? I have seen the possibility that he was born in Nayland, England (town name of Brayton), or that his father was James William L'Breton or that his father was Francis I married to Helen Gale.
I've not had any luck in finding documentation for any of these possiblities. Hope someone has broken down this brick wall!
Lucy Ann Brayton Brown was my great grandmother. Her line:
Stephen, Gideon, Joseph, Gideon, Thomas, Francis)
Thanks for any comments, suggestions, etc.!
