Dear Jeni

I have recently been looking at both the DNA, for male and female lines, and the recorded genealogy for my family. For my mothers side, we are linked to the Port's of Kent by record (not yet by DNA as I have to do more research).

My mother (69) is the daughter of Charlotte Port, now deceased, whom has the lineage as follows (approx):

MY MOTHER: Christine Chapman nee Port - Leyton, London b.1943
HER MOTHER: Charlotte Port -Leyton, London b.1916
HER FATHER: Dan Port, Canterbury b.1875
GF: William Wallace Port, Alderney CI, b.1853 (suspect father Dan working on Alderney breakwater project)
GGF: Dan Port, Chislet, Kent b. 1833
GGGF:Randall Port, Herne, Kent b.1791

I note that the Port's seem very concentrated in the Thanet and NE areas of Kent and thought there is probably a link to your Port lineage. However, from the family tree itself, I cannot see an Albert Port with that birth date.

However I hope this helps you with your searching. FYI the handed down history, by word of mouth, is that the Ports' are French Huguenots, but I cannot say it is true or not.

Hi Alex,

we are indeed related. Randall Port (b 1791) was my 3x great grandfather, but my line runs through his first wife, Frances Philpott, and their first son James Port, (1814-1853) who was Albert's father.

You are connected through Randall's second wife, Sophia Beer.

If you want to know more, we can take you back another five or six generations of Ports.

cheers cousin,
Jeni

Hi

That's interesting indeed.  I would love to know more, and in the meantime will pass this information to my mother whom is doing the research. SHe has everything from Randall/Sophia onwards. A pretty large family from her side, many siblings at every generation! Unlike my paternal side, much more constrained.
