In Reply to: Re: THOMAS KEENE of ISLE OF KENT, MD & NORTHUMBERLAND CO., VA by Bryant Knight of 1590

We haven't seen any active Keene researchers that have mentioned their dna connections back to Thomas Keene's three boys, William, Thomas, or Mathew. My sister Carol and I are researching the connections of Keene/Kene in the Beccles, Eye, Bury St. Edmund, and Ipswich, Suffolk areas between 1300 and 1700. We've found a lot of references for the general family but have yet to find 'the golden ticket' that proves beyond doubt. Every mention of a Thomas is secondary, always in the right area to belong, but never specified as son or brother to the exact match. Eventually the evidence will surface with the archives of on-line documentation. Everyday is a new opportunity to find the right connection. We have found Virginia/Maryland neighbors mentioned in wills and deeds from the generation of Thomas's parents, Thomas Keene b around 1565 and Elizabeth Gosnold b around 1570. I'm sure that Elizabeth's Gosnold family ties to the Wingfield family will eventually bring the connections together. Keene, Bacon, Gosnold, Garney/Garner, Brown, Smith, Kirke, Prettyman, Boushier/Basha, Sayer, Edgar, Neville, Broughton and more...the connections continue. Cynthia Couch Rodriguez
