Good evening. Something to consider regarding surnames. There may be many reasons a person does not use their biological surname. Marriage, adoption, name change or perhaps an alias. Late in life I learned that the name I was born with was not the birth surname of my father. He lived under an alias for his adult life. Surnames are can be a guide, but unlike DNA, they can be changed. Follow the shared matches...

Aye, that's my grannie, all right. I have not done much else work on a number of the lines she stemmed from. But I do know her grandmother, Ruth Kingston (hence my gran's Kingston middle name) was a schoolteacher. She married John Allen when they both were students at a normal school (as teacher training places were called in them there days) in Middletown Cheney, Northants, her home town, I think, but have no actual evidence, that she is connected to the wider Kingston family that has grown and grown larger and larger still in the United States through Mormon connections.
