I am from the U.S.
My Penns, moving forward from George and Helen/Eleanor/Ellen are: They had a daughter Sarah, born 5/4/1837 and christened 6/4/1837 at All Saints Wesleyan Methodist Church, Northampton.
She married Thomas William Latten on 11/4/1860 at the parish of All Hallows in London, England.
They left London for Canada in 1870, arriving at the Port of Quebec, Canada with their 5 children on 7/13/1870.
My grandfather, Thomas William Letten (changed name), was one of those children and he eventually emigrated from Canada to Chicago, Illinois where he met and married my grandmother. From that time on, they moved back and forth between Chicago, Ill and Muskegon, Michigan.
My grandfather always told his children they were descendants of William Penn, which is what started my quest. This was probably only wishful (or boastful)thinking on his part, but it got me going on a genealogy journey that has been alot of fun.
