Toni:

Your message does not provide any evidence that "Sir Andrew
Endsley" ever existed. Nor does it provide any evidence
that a person by that name was in any way connected with any of the North Carolina Endsley/Ensley lines. It does
not offer any verifiable evidence that would be acceptable
to anyone serious about verifying their family lineage.

One researcher told me that he has attempted for nearly 20-years to have someone cite a source for evidence of the very existance of a "Sir John Andrew Endsley." So far, the
many people so busily posting messages attesting to his
existance have unanimously failed to reply.
It is absolutely unthinkable to me that a conscientious
researcher, whether on the internet, or elsewhere, would not cite his or her sources and/or supporting evidence when
proffering alleged genealogical lines to others. For reported genealogical information to be of any value at all
to the persons reading it, sources of information must be
cited in such a way that any other interested person may
quickly and easily find and review the information.
Until someone presents some credible evidence that "Sir
John Andrew Endsley" ever existed, I, in my mind, shall con-sign the allegations of his very existance somewhere in the
"F-files." [Fantasy, Fictitious, Fraudulant].
