Hello, I understand that your wife is looking for information concerning her family name. My maiden name is Treat. I am excited to let you know that our history from conception is glorious indeed. We originate from Pittminster England. Apparently there was an argument over a bell that finally set off one of our family members and he packed up his wife and ten children and came to the colonies in the mid to early 1630's. I Believe the church is St Mary and St Andrew's, there is a website. We founded a few important early cities, were poloticians, judges, and sea captains as well as signers of the Declaration of Independance by Robert Treat Paine of Conneticut. There is also a Robert Treat Paine house and society. So be patient and continue to dig, there are not many of us left(about 4,500 in the states) however our history is what made this country what it is.
