As the earliest of this surname at Kittery, and because he cannot be connected to any other first generation founder as a son, it is here assumed that this man emigrated on his own, and that his descendants constitute an independent line. Y-DNA testing to date, while limited to one descendant participant, supports this hypothesis.
