Industrial Revolution - my father's paternal family Welsh/Shropshire and local, his maternal line part Shropshire and local met my mother's who were Irish, Shropshire and Northants and local.

Local = Black Country

They all drifted into the Dudley or Walsall area due to the heavy industry or leather trade. ;D

Henry II marriage to Eleanor of Aquitaine. One of her French knights was apparently the first Pyne/Pine in England. Was granted the manor of Upton in Devon.

A century before that happened Brian Boru, High King of Ireland defeated a Norse army at the Battle of Clontarf. Some Norse survivors and their families allegedly crossed the sea to the Fylde region of Lancashire where there were already Norse settlers. Many ancestors of my female line were born in Fylde.

There was a programme some time ago ,where DNA from the Lancashire coastal area was tested,a skeleton had been found in a sort of cave,
The results of the DNA testing on local residents showed Norse genes.
Can’t remember the name of the programme,don’t think it was Meet the Ancestors.
Of course there were Norse settlers in the Isle of Man.

If it was a man alive in early 18th century it might have been one of my 6xGGFs, one whose burial I can't find. All I know is that his son, my 5xGGF was born in 1738 and his father is noted as deceased on baptism register. I've wondered if he went fishing one day and never came back.
I haven't had a dna test. I expect mine has Scandinavian genes.
Still in the Fylde region, I'm descended several times from Moon of Kirkham parish. Surname Moon may derive from the Norman-French de Mohun. They may have the Norman Conquest to thank for their surname if not their lineage.

Sorry the skeleton was much older than that,I should  have made it clear.
There are prehistoric footprints of a family of four walking across the mud.
Mother ,father and two children.
They are in clay and fill up,at high tide,archaeologists blot up the water at low tide and there they are,thousands of years old.
I would love to see them,but the Fylde coast can be treacherous.

 I think there is a possible 3 way confusion here. The footprints are I think Paleolithic, well over 10,000 years old. One skeleton is the red lady of Paviland (it is in fact male) up to 30000 if memory serves, a third one and where local people were compared for DNA markers, Cheddar man, about 12000.Hope that helps

Definitely too early for my man. I wasn't seriously imagining the skeleton to have been him. (Can imagining said to be serious?) Simply straw-clutching. My theory about him drowning on a fishing trip and washing up somewhere is genuine though.
It would be interesting to watch the programme.

Oh I have mixed up things just few few thousands of years,what is that between friends?
Reminds me of a friend, a wine buff,in a reastaurant , asked for a 1967 Beaujolais,wine came ,he sniffed,tasted etc and said that is not a 67.
That year was a very good one ,what had been brought was a 69.
The waitress said”Oh come now, you are surely not going to make a fuss over a couple of years are you?”
Thanks Redroger.
