    • === THOMAS GARNER

      Need a documented male member of the Gardiner family of Charles and St. Mary's County Maryland to agree to a Y series DNA test from ancestry.com. Which I am willing to pay for.

      Subject, prior to taking this DNA tests must provide documented history as to the relationship to this family.

      Male progenitor of this Gardiner family was Richard Gardiner and his son Luke Gardiner.

      This is to provide definite proof that myself and several other individuals who DNA has been tested are truly related to this family. Based upon cold searches of Southern Maryland I note what appears to be numerous male individuals related to that family.

      Any assistance would be appreciated, DNA shows on the X chromosome a relationship to the Gardiner and Boarman family in Southern Maryland.

      Research notes from William Good

      I kept seeing the marriage of Richard Gardiner and Elizabeth Hame/Home/Hume supposedly occurring at St Martin in the Fields, Westminster, 23 January 1614. Of course there was no such marriage in the Church Register.

      I finally found the marriage of Richard Gardiner & Elizabeth Hame at Ockham in Surrey on 23 January 1614/15.

      I also found the will of Elizabeth's father, Mathew Hame of Ockham, at London in 1640. Mathew mentions his daughter Elizabeth Gardiner, his son-in-law Richard Gardiner and his Gardiner grandchildren, Agnes, Mary, Richard, John and Thomas.

      Clearly Richard Gardiner & Elizabeth Hame have nothing to do with the Maryland Gardiners

      Matthew Hame's will is available on ancestry.com. It went to probate at London in 1640 but annoyingly has been indexed as "Mathew HAINE" not "Mathew HAME."
