Paternal Ancestry

     My paternal Lawrence ancestry goes back to England through Robert Lawrence who immigrated to Isle of Wight Co., Virginia, around 1638. He was the son of Sir John Lawrence, Baronet, of London and Grissell Gibbons. Sir John’s ancestry traces to the Lawrence of Ashton Hall in Lancashire, England, who descend from the de Lancasters, Barons of Kendal. Additional detail on other descendants of Robert Lawrence of Isle of Wight Co. can be found on my Robert Lawrence Descendants web page. Additional information on the descendants and ancestors of the Ashton Hall Lawrences can be found on Lawrences of Ashton Hall web page. There are other Lawrence families in America who immigrated to New England, New York, and New Jersey who also are descended from the Lawrences of Ashton Hall. I have included a little information on some of those lines but have chose to concentrate on the descendants of Robert Lawrence.
