I am Astra Daines, wife of Timothy Daines, 10th generation descendant of Abraham Daynes/Daines/Dains b. 1640 Yarmouth England. Died New London CT. married Sarah Peake (d. of William Peake m. Elizabeth Unknown). I have been seeking Abraham's parents in England. I suspect, since the names of his first two children are Johanna and John, that Abraham's (or Sarah's) father was John (or mother Hannah or Johanna or Anne). I have found is that a John Daynes married an Alice Ryvett and had three children in 1587. Alice's mother, Christian/Crysen (Gosnold) Ryvett, left Alice and her children a bequest of 20s. These Daynes' were related (grandchildren) to Robert Gosnold Ottley, Suffolk, m. Anne. Amongst Robert and Anne's other grandchildren was Anthony Gosnold, father of Capt. Bartholemew Gosnold, early explorer of the New England coast. Other names that Mrs. Ryvette mentions are Younge, Scutton and Bacon. The think I find interesting is that John's children are Rachel Daynes, Robert Daynes, and Anne Daynes. Chystian Ryvett's will was probated in 1589. This is from a CD of English Origins of New England families. I saw your posting and thought I must contact you, as I am still in search of Abraham Daynes' father/mother.
