I had heard there was another version of the Lide genealogy before this posting and later also verified the other version Maj. Robert Lide son of John Lide of Bertie, NC and Charles City son of Robert Lide of Charles City and James City VA. I have worked fairly hard to go farther back but to no avail. I found out that Robert Lide in Charles City was beside Robert Brooks. There was a Robert Brooks beside a George Lloyd in Essex, Co. Could this be a connection. A VA Lloyd researcher told me to follow the spelling of the name. See said it is probably not a coincedence that Lide was more prevalent in this branch. Maybe there is a connection to the Cornelius Lyde Lionel Lyde of Bristol. I have also seen this Lyonel as Lide. Lyde seems to have been common in Devon and Sommerset. There is a town of Lyde in Herefordshire. In is interesting that there is Womsley in this same area. Womsley is mentioned in both Robert Lide VA transactions (a neibor in both locations). They must have been associated somehow. I have not yet followed Womsley to see where it leads.
