St Mary Trimley - TURTILL family 1700s
« on: Saturday 21 March 20 13:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi my ancestor Robert Turtle (c1770/76-1842) is a bit of a mystery. The name seems to originate in Suffolk but I haven't found a definite baptism.

However with Ancestry DNA I have a match to someone descended from a James Turtill who married Elizabeth Downing in 1771 and who lived at Trimley.

Their son was James Turtill was apparently baptised at Trimley in 1773 and I therefore wonder if this is where my Robert Turtle was from.

Would someone please be able to check the baptisms for Trimley please?

Thank you,
Jon

I have found an earlier rootschat post that links to the Turtills here:
