Looks like we're pretty much on the same page (or webpage) as far as the research goes.
The MacAlpin tie seems to be something of a stretch but I pursuing it from reverse just in case.
I've tied into the clan MacAlpin in the Allphin line but at an unexpected point.
If you are an Allphin/Alphin with Shelton lineage, that line shoots back as far as the year 6ad/ce, and in one point ends up in Scotland with Eoachid I father of Alpin I father of Kenneth MacAlpin.
I'm exhausting links along this route but it's not a total impossibility.
There is a place in England called Allphin and something but I'll have to post that on another day as it is on the home comp.
I also know a family called VanAlfen and this is certainly a possibility as well.
Ships/prisoners lists have been no help as of yet but hope is still there.
...more later, bye
