North America

We appear to have two lines of Drings in the USA that descend from the family from Warboys in Huntingdonshire, England. As this set of pages become organized we should be able to show the descendants of Nathaniel & Johnson Dring from Over, Cambridgeshire, England & Jennie (Jane) Dring from Woodhurst, Huntingdonshire, England. We now have information of two other lines of descent One in Canada and another (possibly a sister of Jennie Dring) in the USA. There is also a Dring family that have lived in Little Compton, Rhode Island since around 1660 with a direct link to the Pilgrim Fathers. Any information that you can pass on to us will be gratefully accepted, and used to help others find their way through their family history.
