Greetings All, I am researching WILSON in and about West Harling, Norfolk, amongst other names. My furthest WILSON is in Costessey, Norfolk and is born in 1761.
Thought East Anglia, since Hales is in Norfolk, may be interested in this one;

I have wondered the same for my RUST surname is there a distant similarity? I know my immigrant ancestor Henry and his father George were born and baptisied in Norwich. circa 1612 and 1594.
Hi I am Interested of the Rush Familys of Suffolk and Norfolk Last Time I looked there were 120 Rush names in the Norwich phone book,
You and I share the Rush family name. It is felt my Rush may be from Norfolk to Lancashire, to Pennsylvania (Quakers, Dr Benjimin Rush, signed a Declaration of Independence from England), USA, with Wm Penn, to Virginian, to Kentucky to Iowa.

Suffolk 487 1: 731

"Ronald Mallett('s response)
Thank you for that Mark. So are you saying that the Elliots I probably share an ancestor with were the ones who came to Norkfolk as Elwald and Bourne? Might this indicate that further back my Malletts came from Norfolk? I certainly have a lot of 12 marker matches in Ireland as well (specifically Fermanagh which trace themselves back to Scotland). I'm sorry if I'm coming across as a bit thick but when you say the time of the 'Danish- Anglos' (note; term used do to linguistic migration) do you mean as Norman mercanaries after 1066 and on to become Rievers, lated exiled to Ireland - or do you mean at another time?"
Ronald Mallett, Have done a study where have listed four names with 12 marker surname match-up. Dennis, Gresham, Cave, and Scarborough. http://gorrenberry.com/geographic-surname-dna-correlation/ Gresham, Cave, and Scarborough, are names of places it is felt owned by the Barony of Bourne, of Lincolnshire County, therefore the barony likely had family members before surnames at these localities on a Liddel Strength Castle on the Scottish border. Note; May want to Google "Proto Germanic DNA" for more info.
My apologies, the spreadsheet for the mt DNA was out of sync with its tallying of the numbers, probably when additional samples were added. This mostly effected the proportion of Hg T, which is now higher at 19% and now brings the total to 199 mt DNA samples.
mt DNA map updated to 21July 16, now 199 samples & includes about a dozen Anglo-Saxon burials [from tests a few years ago]. Most of these were in Norwich plus some iron age burials north & south of Cambridge, mainly Hinxton. The majority are Hg H although a couple of T & K, details are on the spreadsheet on https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BxgZFl5jlQ2RVDB2cXFtTV9uWFU
mt DNA map of East Anglia with J, K & T haplogroups highlighted v 23 Dec 15
Map showing only E, G, J & R1a Y DNA samples,
light green are areas of Hg I & light pink are areas of R1b.
While the numbers are very small,
E, J and [part of] G are haplogroups which are predominantly in or with ancestry once from the Mediterranean.
All 4 would seem to have little overlap, with R1b & I and with each other and tend to be in rural locations [except in Norwich].
