    The insurmountable problem ?

    I am almost certain we are connected to a brother of the 1704 female Gatty ancestor my father's dna match is related to. By process of elimination that leaves 2 brothers born 1683 and 1690. The problem ,which seems insurmountable , is linking back that far to verify that. I am stuck at my 4th great who was married at Liverpool in 1810. Neither Ancestry or Family search offers up a likely baptism/birth . Thus there is at least a 120 year plus (roughly 4 generation) gap to be filled.

    Have you tried parish records at findmypast? Where were the 1600s Gattys you are interested in born, and do you have any idea where the Liverpool one was born based on later information (such as census records)?

    Just tried FMP and drew a blank for baptism/birth of my 4th gt William Gatty. The 4th gt William Gatty seems to have died around 1817 but I've never been able to find the burial. The 1600 Gattys were born in Cornwall .
