I forgot to credit Stephen E. Hersey as author of "The Hersey Family, Tracing ..." mentioned above.

The George in question is listed as "George W. Hersey"

Hi Crystal,

Thanks for your reply and good luck with your search under other spellings. I did notice in the Intro. to the 5 generations of Hearseys book that a Mr. Hersey was thanked for his contribution to sorting out the various branches of the family, so, presumably, we are one family.

I'm in touch with a Hersey in London whose family lore has it that they're Gypsies, seriously, and I have found a Hersey in an old English census listed as Gypsy (actually, another word, which escapes me, which meant Gypsy.) I've wondered if this family is actually descended from the Anglo-Indian family and forgotten their true roots. Anyway, since they don't know their pedigree, their yDNA results wouldn't mean much.

I also wrote to a woman, via Facebook, who is descended from the Hearseys, but she didn't reply. Would you be she? She uses "Round" as part of a pseudonym.

I'll let you know if I get any leads.

Hi - Saw your post searching on Hersey. Could your George Hersey have been born in America? There is a George Hersey b. June 16, 1798, Boston, Massachusetts
"The Hersey Family, Tracing the Descendents of William Hersey, 1635 - 1994"
There is no information about this George other than his birthdate, which is unusual. The family is pretty well documented and childhood deaths are usually recorded as well notes about individuals moving, so maybe this is your George. It appears he fell off the Earth, which might be the same as moving to England. Working backwards, his parents and paternal grandparents are:
William Hersey (March 19, 1764) and Sarah ? (1766)
William Hersey (October 24, 1741, Boston, Mass.) and Martha Russell
Israel Hersey (April 1, 1702, Hingham, Mass.) and Tabatha Parkman (January 1, 1721)
John Hersey (October 27, 1659, Hingham, Mass.) and Elizabeth ? (Hingham, Mass)
William Hersey (1632, Reading, Berks) and Rebeccah Chubbuck (April 1641, Hingham, Mass.)
William Hersey (August 22, 1596, Reading, St. Giles, Berks) and Elizabeth Croade (1610, Suffolk, Eng.)
Nathaniell Hercy (abt 1566, either Swanton Morley, Norfolk or Reading St. Giles, Berks) & Ann ?

Hi - Excuse my jumping into your conversation. I am interested in finding out if there is any connection between the Hearsey family and the Hersey and Hercy families. Are there any male Hearseys descended from the Anglo-Indian family? If so, would they be interested in taking a yDNA test to see if they match the Hersey family? (yDNA is passed unchanged from father to son only.) -- William Hersey (aka Hercy, Hearsey and Hearsay) came to America in 1635 in the company of people from Hingham, Norfolk and is probably a member of the Hercy family of Notts although he himself was from Reading, Berks. The Hersey/Hersy/Hearsey/etal family was well documented and pretty spread out. It would be fun to see if there were any connection with your family and mine. - The yDNA test is about $100 and we could help with or cover the expense if someone were interested in taking part. Thanks. - John Hersey
